It is a fond memory of a cute bonding moment between Matthew and Granny Pam. It turned out Granny Pam had some great Achoos! and it really got Matthew going, so he threw himself on Granny Pam every time she sneezed. It was hilarious and Granny Pam was already in hysterics.

This is a fun book for storytime. I love doing "colds" as one of my winter storytime themes. This book is fun to read-- but even better if you can make a flannel (because the book itself is an 8X8). Kids love sneezing along with you from the tiny butterfly all the way up to the GIANT elephant.

Great book for having children think about sizes-small, medium, gigantic and talking about jungle animals. The illustrations are bright and colorful.

Fun, cumulative readaloud with progressively louder (bigger animal) sneezes. Great for sneezing storytime; small-format book could also work better as a flannel for a large group.
