Bear Feels Sick by Karma Wilson

On a crisp Autumn day bear catches a cold. his friends all come by to try and make him feel better by fluffing his pillow, finding him a warm, cozy spot to sleep, and making him something hot to drink. This is a lovely story about how to help a friend when they aren't feeling well. I like to use it to help preschoolers develop the ability to take the perspective of someone else. How would you like to be treated? Do you think his friends make bear happy or sad? It's a lovely story with a repetitive text line "Bear feels sick" that children love to chime in on.
