Soo's Boo Boos

Soo has ten boo boos and she counts them with sweet sing-songy rhythm.
"8 is a mosquito bite. I got in the yard last night. 
I pinched my finger in the door,
that's number 9 and here's one more!
10 - a scratch about to bleed. 
Some boo-boo help is what I need."
As Soo counts and shows off her boo boos, which includes scratched arms, scabby knees, itchy bites, and pinched fingers...
...her mother problem solves ways to make Soo's boo boos all better - such as kisses, ice, band aids and popsicles.
"Mom smiled at Soo. 'Just count on me.
Your boo-boos are my specialty.
This will fix that scratch, I think,
what color do you want-hot pink?
Does 10 feel better? It looks nice!
For 9, your finger, we'll rub ice.'"
We completely adore this book, written by Tilda Balsley.  The beautiful illustrations by Shelagh McNicholas only adds to the story.  And Soo is so cute, you'll want to kiss those sweet cheeks too.
Soo's Boo Boos is sure to be a family favorite!
