Reviews - What do customers think about Arthur's Chicken Pox: An Arthur Adventure?
Arthur Goes to the Circus Oct 31, 2006
I read Arthur's Chicken Pox. In this book, Arthur gets the chicken pox. Arthur wakes up with red spots on his face. He gets to eat on the sofa and DW wants to eat on the sofa, too. Will Arthur ever get better...I think you should read this book.
A Book About Being Sick That Children Will Like - a review of "Arthur's Chicken Pox" Jul 8, 2006
My take on this book results from my observations of my four and six year olds (boy and girl). I think it would be popular with children precisely for the same reason that books on loose teeth are popular: children in this age range are tremendously curious about their bodies.
My daughter went frantic for a while inquiring about loose teeth. She inspected the mouth of anyone who had missing teeth or who had wobbly ones. She asked what happened to them that they got loose, and what happened to them after they fell out....
In the same way, I see her looking at this book about chicken pox. She (and to a lesser extent, her brother) are curious about the spots, what they mean, etc. Also, I think it is just dawning on children this age that they can get very ill, and I believe it is comforting to them see that they will be cared for.
[One mom commented that she was concerned about how much loving care was lavished on Arthur and D.W. But I think it is reassuring to children.]
Four Stars. Okay Read-aloud that is interesting to children.
so cute Dec 28, 2005
I haven't read the book but I've seen the episode on PBS and it was so cute, and also funny how DW pretended to have chicken pox just so she'll get attention.
A funny look at sibling rivalry Jan 13, 2004
Arthur gets the chickenpox just before the circus comes to town. So he gets all the attention and care ~~ leaving his sister, D.W. out in the cold with jealousy. She fakes getting chickenpox and learns a lesson the hard way.
It's a cute look at sibling rivalry and envy. The story is readable and fun.
Once again the illustrations are fun to look at ~~ bright and colorful and cheerful. My boys can't read yet but they really enjoy the illustrations and I enjoy reading the stories.
Primarily focusing on enviousy Jan 1, 2003
Well, now that a hopefully working vaccine for chicken pox has been developed, this story is still great for teaching one about being careful what he or she wishes for. The circus is in town-everybody's excited to go, but when Arthur is sick with chicken pox, D.W. comes home from play group to find Arthur lying on the couch so wishes she was sick so pretends to think Arthur is just pretending to be sick. And as the story continues, D.W. shows how she wishes she was the sick one-and in the end, Arthur is better, but D.W. gets the chicken pox. This will be a great book to teach about being careful what you wish for even when chicken pox no longer exists.
