Baby play, baby play, all day, hooray!

Suddenly—aachoo! Sneeze, cough, boo-hoo!

Shiver, rashy, fever, squirm, oh no—Sherm the Germ!


Baby’s perfect day of play is interrupted by an unwelcome, microbial visitor—Sherm the Germ. Written by a pediatrician and brought to life through playful illustrations, this fun, rhyming book describes the stages of becoming sick and then getting better. A perfect read-aloud for those wishing to get well soon or any budding physician, this board book uses a loveable character to teach readers on the basics of what it means to catch a cold or virus and how the healing process works.
