It can't be true. Eddie's birthday (and the Mud Castle Contest) are just days away, but he has an earache. It hurts so much his mom is taking him to the doctor. Dr. Hippo knew just what to do to help Eddie feel better ... in time for his birthday party!
This is a story that every parent and child will appreciate. Rare is the child who hasn't suffered not one earache. The Parent's Guide in the back is a HUGE bonus!
Absolutely None. I hope there are more stories like this.
Our daughter offered the requisite "oh's" and "aw's" of a sympathetic listener. She liked the story and the mud castle contest!
This is a great story for both children and parents. It gently reminds parents that drugs aren't the first-line solution for earaches, and teaches kids the same thing. Tying the earache to something that was personally meaningful to Eddie will resonate with kids.
This picture book walks children through a visit to the doctor's office and offers comfort (and a pamphlet) for dealing with earaches!
This is a story with educational value for EVERYONE in the family. There is medical information about earaches, guidance on how to treat an earache, and a story to help while you ride out the fever and pain.

Read with a 6-year-old child.
Buy! We suggest buying two, because it is the perfect baby shower gift or a present for a new mom. This story will be read LOTS of times, and will be "comfort food" for the child who regularly has earaches.
