What's Bob, Not Bob! About

Publisher Summary

Little Louie is stuck in bed with a bad cold. His nose is clogged, his ears are crackling, and his brain feels full. All he wants is his mom to take care of him, but whenever he calls out for her, his stuffed-up nose summons slobbery dog Bob instead! As Louie tries and tries to make himself understood in this funny picturebook, kids will love calling out with him, “Bob, not Bob!”

This is a pretty sweet tribute to mothers. Even though it is entirely wearing to be needed all the time, especially when little ones are sick, it is extremely fulfilling.
