Bob, Not Bob!

It’s no fun being sick, but it’s worse when no one understands you.

The Picture Book of the Week is an oldie but a goodie, Bob, Not Bob! written by Liz Garton Scanlon & Audrey Vernick and illustrated by Matthey Cordell.

About the Book:

The main character is Louie, a little boy who is just old enough that he doesn’t need his mom so much anymore. That is, until he gets sick. A stuffy nose can make you hard to understand. When he calls for his mom, it comes out as Bob. To confuse things a bit more, his dog is named Bob. This book is a delightful comedy of error with a sweet message at the end.

Writing Exercise:

Little Louie didn’t need his mom so much anymore, until he got sick. Write a story or essay about the times when you still need your mom.

Happy Writing!
