Uh-oh Cleo by Jessica Harper, illustrated by Jon Berkeley
This is the story of Cleo's "Stitches Saturday," a day Cleo will not soon forget.
The day starts out normal, her family is eating breakfast, then her and her twin brother go to play in their room. When they decide to play Monopoly (as they do each Saturday), there is a little complication.
What I Thought: A very cute book! Cleo is one of six kids, which I find fascinating, but most of this story revolves around Cleo and her twin brother.
I think this is a great story for kids who have had stitches, or known someone who had. It is not gory, and Cleo is the shining example of being brave. Mom makes up a lot of silly songs to help Cleo get through the ordeal with a positive attitude, which are just adorable!
A great book for young readers, probably in the 2nd-4th grades. A few black and white illustrations are scattered through the book.
While I link each book to Amazon, I receive no funds from them for this action. I simply do this as a service in case anyone would like to read further reviews (professional or otherwise) for more information. Thank You!
