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.
David McPhail is a beloved author and illustrator of many books for children, including Boy, Bird, and Dog, which features the same characters that are in Sick Day. He lives in New Hampshire.
