Ebeneezer Sneezer didn’t take the time to dress properly when he played outside in the cold, wet weather. As a result, he “became a sneezer,” and his bad cold kept him in bed. This is a cute story that young children will easily identify with.

The story is the lyrics for the song “Ebeneezer Sneezer,” which is on the Troubadour recording “Special Delivery.” It has a catchy tune, and children love it. This book will be a useful addition in the classroom. The illustrations are delightful and colorful. The characters are pictured as animals, with human characteristics and clothing. I would recommend it for a primary classroom and would suggest that the record be purchased also.
