It’s a cozy looking scene. It’s night time. The little boy has a look on his face: “What’s happening to me?” he asks. He is feeling sick, and he is resting; he needs cuddling. Johnny is about 7 years old; since he is feeling sick he is in his parents’ bed so they can cuddle him. Johnny is holding what looks like a hot dog.
The doctor is here to see Johnny; the doctor’s bag is on the bed. The doctor said that Johnny needs rest and cough medication, but he would prefer to have candy. Johnny has a little sister called Susie; Mom and Dad don’t want her to get sick or have candy. Johnny has been crying because he is feeling sick and sad, but if he gets too much candy he may feel even worse.
Johnny missed school that day, and he may miss a few more days if the cough continues. His parents are going to take care of him at home and make sure he eats properly and takes his medication.
Johnny is going to get better soon, but in the meantime he is going to want some new toys. He is anxious to get back to school and tell his friends that he was sick, got some new toys, and his dad played with him. Or the teacher may tell him to explain to his friends what happened since his peers were asking about him. It is important that he tells his friends what the doctor said. This is a very true to life story especially for children
