April – Rhubarb Has A Cold
April Book of the Month. Rhubarb is feeling so poorly! The Foodies Books bring you stories from the veggie patch for each month of the year, and all the characters, scenery and weather are in season that month.
It was a damp and drizzly April day in the garden. Rhubarb was very excited – he and his friends were going to see some daffodils…
In this story, Rhubarb feels really poorly but is not happy about resting because he was looking forward to a fun day with his friends, he feels like he’s the only one missing out. The more he tries to say he’s better, the poorlier he gets.
The story lends itself to discussions of illness and wellness, and how to make ourselves feel better. Our free downloadable activities explore the theme of illness and wellness in more depth, with games about washing our hands to reduce the spread of germs, treating symptoms of minor illness, and how to keep ourselves generally healthy.
