During the course of a week, Max can't sneeze. His nose is irritated with hayfever and allergies of all sorts, but no matter how hard his sneeze builds up, it just won't happen. Follow Max around all week as he helps Grandpa saw wood, plays in the park with Dad, smells cousin Suzy's perfume, and realises he's allergic to Aunt Jane's cat and the fluffy chickens at pre-school. But when he picks some flowers out of the garden for Mum ... that's when it all comes home to roost!
Children will enjoy identifying with the characters and routines in this story, and observing the differences. This story has been designed as a discussion point so that children and carers can talk about 'same' and 'different' so that children learn that we all lead different lives and that different doesn't mean wrong.
Children can learn about colours, days of the week, daily and weekly routines and much more from Todd Sharp's wonderfully detailed and gently humorous illustrations. Perfect for home and classroom use, this story is also a great learn to read text for children aged four to eight.
Also available as a two-in-one print edition with 'Where Did the Sneeze Go?'
