    Iris goes to school only to see that many of her friends are missing. The teacher says that they are sick and a bug is going around so everyone should wash their hands. Iris ends up becoming sick the next day and her twin brother, Doug, gets upset because they may not be able to go to Grandpa's party on Saturday. Iris gets better but then Doug get sick. The book gives a brief explanation of what a virus and a 'bug' are. The message, it's no one's fault when they get sick. Simply a cute little rhyming book about getting sick.

    This picture book has bright, bold illustrations that catch the reader's attention. However, I didn't care for the intermixed prose/verse style and didn't care for the smugness involved in the ending.

    This is a cute book about being sick and some of the terminology children might hear (how can I have a "bug"?) It doesn't get into how sickness spreads though; it only mentions briefly that kids should wash their hands. The topic could've explored that a tad more, I thought!

    A competent picture book about being sick. If used with the intention of explaining to kids what a virus is, it would be just fine. The story on its own (some of which rhymes) would not hold up well beyond that.

    steve read this one to the girls. steve didn't like the puking part because kids are afraid of becoming ill. for an impressionable child like me, this would've set off a night of distress. not a readaloud by any means.

    unattractive illustrations. poor rhymes, sprinkled sporadically but inconsistently throughout. children with bad attitudes. mediocre storyline.

    According to a lot of you, it is not a good read aloud. I thought that it was alright...it was something a little bit different at least and the characters thoughts and actions rang true for me.

    Lots and lots of bugs.

    This isn't a book I'd use for storytime, but I do think it would serve as a good one-on-one book.
