As we head into the season of sickness, this is a perfectly cozy book to have on hand! In Don’t You Feel Well, Sam? by Amy Hest, poor Sam is sick on a cold night on Plum Street.
Don’t You Feel Well, Sam?
Sam doesn’t want his mama to know he is sick because he does NOT like the taste of the medicine in the too big spoon. But Mrs. Bear is gentle and kind as she works out the best way to care for her little bear.
The story by Amy Hest is charming and sweet. The illustrations by Anita Jeram definitely fit the description of cozy from the carved heart on the nightstand and the little mice warming themselves by the woodstove to Sam’s cute stuffed bunny that appears here and there throughout the story.
One of the three Sam books we own, we read Don’t You Feel Well, Sam? over and over and over again to Caroline.
Cozy, sweet, and definitely worth adding to your family’s library!
