Description

Loving friendships and caring for loved ones are the subjects of this poignant, easy-to-read picture book by author-illustrator David McPhail.


When the Boy gets sick, family and friends try to help him get well. Mom brings soup. The Dog brings a bone, and the Bird brings pizza. Though he declines the bone and the pizza, the Boy gets well. But now his friends are sick. And now the boy has a chance to help his friends recover.


Simple text and expressive illustrations tell a story of love and friendship that holds great meaning for its young readership.
