Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0440417716, Paperback)With a stomachache in her head and a headache in her throat, not to mention a sore toe, Emily is definitely due for a sick day. Her work-at-home dad takes the day off to find her stuffed animals, put her hair in ponytails, search for the thermometer, and serve her broth with a plastic giraffe in it. Somehow, this ends up being a pretty fun day for Emily and her father, in spite of her having to "swallow up" and Father having to clean up. By the next day Emily is feeling well again--unfortunately, her faithful caregiver seems to have caught the bug now!
Parents and kids everywhere will recognize themselves in this classic from two renowned creators of children's books, Patricia MacLachlan (Sarah, Plain and Tall, a Newbery Medal winner) and Jane Dyer (Oh My Baby, Little One, by Kathi Appelt). Originally published in 1979, this reissue includes freshly updated watercolors from Dyer (the thermometer, when finally located, is digital). Warm, funny, and reassuring, The Sick Day is good for what ails you. It's sure to be a favorite once again with readers with or without tummy- and toe-aches. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
