This laugh-out-loud picture book from Coy Bowles, guitarist for the Grammy Award–winning Zac Brown Band, will have sick kids feeling better in no time!

Sneezing? Coughing? Taking a sick day? Don’t worry, you’ll be feeling better soon thanks to this hilarious picture book from Coy Bowles, guitarist of the Grammy Award–winning Zac Brown Band. Full of encouraging—and super-silly—rhyming advice on how to face sick days with courage and a positive attitude, When You’re Feeling Sick is just what the doctor ordered! Comes with a sheet of stickers to bring a smile to every sick kid’s face.

A fun, cute book that will uplift the spirits of sick kids. Full of fun illustrations, rhymes, and silliness, this book will be a much needed distraction for sick kids. It's a fun interactive read as well. Ironically enough, it's one that I read with my daughter when she wasn't feeling well. It definitely earned a few laughs from her. 

Music definitely makes everything better. We may have laughed at the 'Sickness Song', 

"I feel sick and I feel poopy. 

All this medicine makes me feel loopy. 
So, sickness, sickness go away, 
Don't come again another day!"

Coy, who's apart of the Zac Brown Band, also has wrote & recored two songs that go along with this book. You can find both the songs here. We highly recommend checking them out. 

Written to bring hope, and happiness to kids when they're ill, Coy hit his mark with this book. I think this book is great for young kids, especially toddler and earlier elementary school aged kids. Coy also includes an author's note at the end of this book, and talks about the inspiration behind this story. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
