Don't You Feel Well, Sam?

author: Amy Hest
illustrator: Anita Jeram

In the little white house, Mrs. Bear is putting Sam to bed, when suddenly — HCK HCK! coughs Sam. Mrs. Bear gets some syrup. But the syrup tastes bad, and there’s too much of it on a too-big spoon, and it’s too hard to swallow. What will make Sam feel better? Acclaimed picture-book creators Amy Hest and Anita Jeram revisit Sam and Mrs. Bear as they share a quiet moment of comfort that is enough to conquer the coldest night.

author’s comments:
Amy Hest is the author of many books, including Kiss Good Night and When Jessie Came Across the Sea, both of which received the Christopher Medal; and In the Rain with Baby Duck, winner of the Boston Globe- Horn Book Award. She says, "My kids are way bigger than I am now, but I remember some long-ago nights . . . and rushing to their rooms when things weren’t quite right. There were many hugs, of course. And occasionally, a dose of terrible-tasting medicine, then we watched the night sky."

She is also the author-illustrator of I Love My Little Storybook; Bunny, My Honey; and All Together Now. About Don't You Feel Well, Sam? she says, "My children love the anticipation of a snowfall, and to see a ‘brand-new’ crisp, white landscape outside is like magic. Sam shares that magic with his Mama, and it helps him to be brave."
