5.0 out of 5 stars Helping families cope and smile ^_^ May 26 2004
Format:Paperback
This book was a gift to me from my mom and I loved it. It gave me ideas for many activities to do while sick. The reciepes are tasty. I became an aupair and this book was a neccesity. Even if the kids were not sick, we were able to to some nice calm fun indoors on not so nice days outside. (like clay making and shadow puppet shows) Now, I am useing this book for my child and husband. No matter how old you are you can use this book to make anyones day a little brighter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mom's Sanity Saver Feb. 14 2009
By Kelly A. Durkee-Erwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My son got mono at age 5 and I needed a lot of activities to keep a little sick boy entertained. This book includes recipes, crafts, activities, videos, and more to keep a harried parent from screaming....
It worked wonders and kept us from relying on the electronic babysitter too much.
