Review of Sammy’s Broken Leg (Oh, No!) and the Amazing Cast That Fixed It by Judith Wolf Mandell

Awesome Children’s Book

Genre: Children’s Book

Book Length (Est.): 32 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

One minute your child is fine. The next minute, a broken bone. Hours later, in a clunky cast. For weeks or months, sidelined from favorite activities. If your child is like Sammy, (s)he gets glum and grumpy as days slog by.

Help is pages away in Sammy’s Broken Leg (Oh, No!) and the Amazing Cast That Fixed It, a whimsical book to entertain a child in a cast for healing a broken bone, or in a spica cast for hip correction (hip dysplasia).

Children in a cast will delight in a troupe of Kisses who cheer for Sammy and coach her to be patient. The Kisses are Sammy’s secret: only she can hear them. How and when they whooshed into her life will amaze and amuse.

It all goes to prove: One Kiss for a Boo-Boo. A Bazillion Kisses for a Cast!

Mindy’s Review:

Sammy loves to jump, twirl and run. That is until she falls and breaks her leg.

The illustrations in this book are wonderful. The details of the hospital visit can make any child feel safe and comfortable if they are ever in this situation.

Everyone has a child that loves to be a kid. All of the jumping and running can lead to a fall. My daughter is 9 years old and she acts just like Sammy. So we read this together and she loved it as much as I did. This is a book that we can read over and over again. And if anything was to ever happen to her or one of her friends I think they would find comfort in this story.

I will recommend this to all of my daughters friends to read.
