Cougar Cub Tales: The Sneezy Wheezy Day Review & #GIVEAWAY

I have quite a few colds a year. I think I would go longer between colds if my children didn't share what they bring home and as much as I keep on top of washing hands and teaching about germs and how to keep safe, there are just some things you cannot escape.

The cold and flu season always live up to it's name.  Families everywhere are having to deal with the symptoms of being sick or taking care of sick children and loved ones.  We parents need all the help we can get to share the care with our family.

Just in time for the peak of cold and flu season comes The Sneezy Wheezy Day (January 2012), a children’s picture book every parent will want to keep on hand for when the sniffles come on.

There is so much comfort in just being able to cuddle up and share tea and a book with your love one. I love doing this with my children and these days my kids prefer to read TO me :), except when they are sick. I don't mind though.
As a nurse and mother of three, Sharon Cramer has seen more than her share of winter illnesses. So much so, she was inspired to write The Sneezy Wheezy Day, the third in the award-winning children’s series that follows the adventures of a brother and sister cougar cub. In The Sneezy Wheezy Day, brother cub has a cold, so he and his sister seek help from their friends to make him better.
My kids love having this new book and the story line is such fun! Of course we get to have discussions about how we help, care, and give comfort to each other. Best of all we get to discuss how siblings need to love and support and share with each other!

I love the illustrations and the book is perfect for any age!

This book will make a lovely gift and I'm so glad I get to share this book. You can also have a free kindle edition copy on amazon. I'm so sad that I couldn't get it on my nook. My daughter asked me if I could get it on the nook :)

Award-winning Cougar Cubs are Remedy for Sniffles Whether sick with a cold or something more serious, book provides kids comfort, teaches compassion
When kids get sick, parents want nothing more than to “make it all better.” We pull out every comfort tool in our arsenal – chicken soup, extra cuddles, and more cartoons. 
In The Sneezy Wheezy Day, brother cub isn’t feeling well. As he and sister cub seek help for his cold, they encounter many well-intentioned forest friends who offer silly home remedies. One friend even tells brother cub, “Tickle your nose with the tail of a goose and do it before the next blue moon rise!” Although the recommendations help, the final remedy is a sibling’s love. 
Cramer wrote the first book in the series, Lost and Alone about sibling rivalry, when her youngest son was born 18 years ago. As a mom to two older sons at the time, Cramer says she felt like an expert on “brotherly love” already. 
The second installment in the series, I’m Just Like You addresses intolerance.   
Cramer illustrates the Cougar Cub Tales books in watercolor, with each picture taking her between 18-24 hours to create. She chose cougar cubs because she wanted to create characters that spoke strongly of the Pacific Northwest , where she lives.  

SHARON CRAMER is a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist and avid competitive equestrian. She is also the author of, soon to be released, Marlo and the Monster, and is working on a new young adult series called The Cerulean Star. She lives in Spokane , Wash.
