From Publishers Weekly:

It may be tried and true, but chicken soup is not the only treatment for a bad cold according to this gentle picture book. When Daddy is sick in bed, Mommy and her daughter each follow their own recipes for the ideal remedy. While Mommy's stock and vegetables simmer away, her daughter concocts a brew that includes Band-aids, balloons, crayons and her favorite stuffed monkey. The crazy mix turns out to be just what the doctor ordered when Daddy says, "Delicious!" Sachar's ( Sideways Stories from Wayside School ; There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom ) slight tale, though somewhat lacking in drama, warmly conveys the deep concern and empathy children often feel when someone they love needs help. Smith's playful, pleasingly unkempt illustrations deliver lots of TLC--the secret ingredient that can make anyone feel better. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- A delightful book that should cheer up anyone who is sick in bed. In order to help make her father feel better, a little girl goes about making a very special soup with some unique ingredients. Included are crayons to add color to his pale face, a blanket to keep him warm, bubbles to make him laugh, her favorite monkey, and more. The illustrations, whimsical, cartoonlike pictures done in watercolor and outlined in black ink, help to portray the humor of the child's chore, while at the same time conveying her love for her father as she carefully selects items for his get-well soup. --Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY
