of the Center for Children's Books

The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

I Don't Feel So Good: Books about Illness and Disease
--selected by Jeanette Hulick

Unfortunately, illness—whether it's chicken pox, cancer, or a common cold—is an all too common part of our everyday lives. If you're looking for some light-hearted fare to entertain a sick child, or accurate information about diseases more frightening than anything you'd see on “Fear Factor,” you're sure to find some of the following titles to be just what the doctor ordered. Box of tissues and cup of chicken soup are optional.
