SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

Little Louie is sick with a terrible cold! His ears are blocked, his nose is stuffed, and he is hot and sweaty. Louie does not want to color, watch tv or shoot baskets. All he wants is his mother. Whenever he calls for his mom, his dog Bob comes running. That’s because Louie sounds different when his nose is stuffy. Everyone is having a hard time understanding and Louie, mom and Bob keep getting mixed up.

Eventually, mom comes into Louie’s room and crawls into bed with him. The two spend the rest of the day sleeping. When Louie starts to feel better, he is able to play with Bob again and can speak regularly. However, he hears Mom start to sneeze. Students will laugh out loud as they listen to this book that should be read as though you have a cold.
