This full color picture book begins with Sadie the giraffe beading necklaces for her School Art Fair. Soon she begins to feel sick. Her mother worries about Sadie's sore throat and takes excellent care of her at home before they go off to their pediatrician, a friendly hippopotamus named Dr. Hippocrates. Is Sadie too sick to go to the Fair? Will she need antibiotics? Will her necklaces win a prize? The story includes a separate Parent Guide, "Simplifying Sore Throats." In this Guide, Dr. Cowan answers common parental questions like: "What is a strep throat?" How can I keep my child comfortable?" "When may my child return to school?"
