This is a fun story - what could be better than Grandpa telling stories while you're home sick with the chicken pox? The tale he tells is quite silly, but the story around the story is enchanting, especially when Grandma brings in hot chocolate for three!

We are enjoying reading the stories in the Grandpa Spanielson's Chicken Pox Stories series and will certainly look for the next book at our local library.

Ouch! We will *not* be reading this book again because of the subtext. We didn't like how the grandma seems to be bossing the grandpa around a lot (like he's a kid), and then he *does* act like a kid by deceiving her and finding a way to get out of the work he agreed to do. At the end of the story, grandma gives a to grandpa to let him know that she knew all along that he wasn't going to do his work.

This is a "Reading With Help 2" book meaning a high-interest story for developing readers.

Excerpt from the book:
"Grandma closed Barney's bedroom door softly.
Grandpa poured himself another cup of coffee.
'How's my favorite grandpup doing?' he asked.
'Better,' said Grandma.
'Doctor Storkmeyer says he needs plenty of rest.'
'What he needs,' said Grandpa,
'is another one of my famous anti-itch chicken pox stories!'"

Barney has chicken pox and is itching up a storm so his Grandfather tells him Grandpa Spanielson's Chicken Pox Stories to keep his mind off of his illness. This time it's about a neighbor who has a snout for chocolate and needs help from the firehouse. AR 2.1

A SNOUT FOR CHOCOLATE - Grandpa Spanielson's Chickenpox Stories #2 Denys Cazet

Chicken pox, tall tales, and outrageous humour - Denys Cazet's Grandpa Spanielson and his favourite grandpup are back in their second book

Poor Barney's still got the chicken pox. While Grandma is certain he needs rest, Grandpa knows what Barney really needs is another dose of Grandpa's Anti-Itch ..

Grandpa's next story has him (allegedly) working for the fire department and rescuing Miss Piggleson from choking on chocolate. I've heard of Death by Chocolate but this literally takes the (Chocolate!) cake.
Danielle Simmons
The chicken pox stories are great stories to stop the itch! Grandma tells Barney to get some rest to stop the itch, but grandpa has a different idea. Grandpas anti-itch stories bring this book to life.

This is another book in the series where the little boy has chicken pox and his grandfather tells him another story to make him feel better. This is another humorous story involving the rescue of a neighbor that gets her nose stuck to a box of chocolates in the freezer.

This book was funny because they had to use a hair dryer to get Mrs. Piggerman out of the refrigerator.

My three year old really likes the chicken pox stories, especially the Octupus #1. I like the interaction between the grandpa and grandma, I can see my husband and I being like that someday.
