A girl learns that a cold needs a LOT of things, as she waits for a bad case of the sniffles to run its course.

An amusing, heartwarming story about the unavoidable stages of dealing with a cold. What does a cold need? It needs a comfy bed by a window, warm socks, Grandma's chicken soup, and plenty of Dad's silly jokes. In this warmly written picture book about a girl waiting for a rotten case of the sniffles to run its course, she and her family learn an important lesson--a cold needs what a cold needs.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Your child has a cold? Well, along with the chicken soup, they might welcome this book. What does a cold need? The comforting yet sprightly text goes through a litany of helpers everything from the aforementioned soup to a comfy bed, from a mom's soft hands to a dad's jokes. The text uses the cold as its protagonist (""It likes music and a long, deep afternoon nap""), but the art, watercolor, colored pencil, and graphite illustrations focus on the shaggy-haired, red-nosed child who is the recipient of all the attention, cure-alls, and love. The endearing art captures the aggravation that comes along with being sick, including an overflowing basket of tissues, but also some of the perks, including an affectionate little spotted dog, who is a reminder of all the fun to be had that's waiting just outside. Get a couple of copies for library shelves colds abound!--Ilene Cooper Copyright 2010 Booklist"
