PreSchool-Grade 2—In rhyming text, an anthropomorphized raccoon family must cope when Mama is stuck in bed with a fever. Of course, even with every other family member working hard, it is challenging to manage everything that Mama usually does all by herself. The soft watercolor cartoon illustrations flesh out the simple story and provide great punch lines to the text. In the end, Mama is surprised by how well her family has managed during her illness, but the last comical spread shows that she is in for yet another surprise.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA
