Review - The Sneezy Wheezy Day by Sharon Cramer

Cougar Cub Tales: The Sneezy Wheezy Day
By: Sharon Cramer

About the book:
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!

Review by Kelsey G.
What? A brother and sister pair who aren't at each other's throats with mischief and tattling?
Unheard of! Yet here it is, a tale of two cougar cubs who are truly playmates and act like a family! I enjoyed reading this to my daughter, and she enjoyed the bright pictures! I think it's worth applauding too, that the author actually is the illustrator and I think that does the book a great service. The illustrations aer smooth and colorful, and we enjoyed the varying characters, allowing a lot of great opportunites for funny voices, which we love! One note I would make is that the rhyming scheme seemed a bit uneven, and a couple times that threw me off while reading. Overall though, a good read!
