If you get a chance to pick up this new children’s picture book by
Louie is sick in bed and even though he is a big boy, he still wants the love of his mom. So although he is congested and all stuffed-up, he calls out to her: “BOB!”
Garton-Scanlon and Vernick have created a hilarious tale about what happens when Louie wants mom but calls the family dog Bob instead. Bob, Not Bob! is a fun, carefree story about family love and a nasty cold and is well worth a read with your children.
I’ll be giving this a try with my daughter and in one of my story-time programs for sure.
