Jimmy is a 7 year old boy. He is home in bed because he is feeling under the weather. Jimmy stayed home from school today because he has a temperature of 102 degrees. His mother, Agnus, is having the doctor come to the house because it is too cold outside for a sick boy.
Jimmy has a dog named Honey who is also worried about him and is sleeping in bed with Jimmy. Honey whines when she knows Jimmy needs something. When Agnus hears this whine she knows to come to his room with some chicken noodle soup.
His mother and father are worried about him. Agnus took the day off from work in order to help him feel better. Agnus is busy keeping Jimmy warm and checking his fever. Agnus is making homemade chicken noodle soup and is making sure he drinks plenty of fluids.
Jimmy is bored in bed. Agnus gave him a Nancy Drew book for him read while is ill. Jimmy is unhappy with this book choice so he requests a comic book or put a television in his room.
Jimmy just wants to get well so he can go play outside with his friends.
