First Line: "The cougar cub siblings were sister and brother, who lived in their den by the edge of the hills."
Brother Cougar Cub is ill. With the help of sister, they seek the advice of their well intentioned forest friends. The Grizzly Old Bear tells him, The reason you’re warm is you have too much hair. Best if you trim it as short as you dare. But, could it be that SISTER finally discovers the best remedy? The Sneezy Wheezy Day is a wonderful tale that will delight and challenge your child, but it is the paintings that will capture you and your young readers! Make sure to have your child search for the small, hidden creature on each page!
This is an adorably cute book which captivates not only with it’s rhyming verse but mostly with it’s incredibly vivid watercolor pictures. The two sibling are on a quest to find a cure for the ill brother cub. They meet a host of wonderful animals and get all kinds of advice before returning home and finding that sister cub had the solution all along.
My only curiosity throughout was: where is Mama bear? However every time I’d flip the page and see another gorgeous illustration I’d be captivated all over again.
Was it worth my Time?
