Yesterday, I read on MSN.com that a CDC official said that the H1N1 or "Swine Flu" virus has now been reported in all 50 states. By now I'm sure that you've all seen the internet pic floating around that shows the toddler kissing a pig along with the caption, "How Not to Get the Swine Flu", but in case you missed it...
So, I find these next few pics hilarious in a not-so-gross (as in the above photo) teacher-mommy sort of way! I take Mary and Benjamin to the library once a week to check out books and we came across this one...
It is a hilarious rhyming story about a young boy's attempts at caring for his farm animals that mysteriously come down with...you guessed it...the FLU!
"But it was likely just as well
that Mom was out of town a spell
when, marching through the morning dew,
I heard the milk cow moo,
Poor thing," I said,
"you've got the flu!"
(Pigs with the flu!)
My toddler and preschooler were delighted with this story and it has become a new favorite! To learn more about public school librarian and children's author, Teresa Bateman, author of Farm Flu click here.
