This story lets horse loving children know that working animals are special and like what they do. Also children with allergies can see that having an allergy is not all bad.

This was one of my favorite books as a child and now I get to read it with my daughter. She loves to "sneeze" like Robert does in the book. Great book!!

Good read aloud book. Repetitive phrasing prior to each sneezing incident provides opportunity for children to participate in story. The can repeat familiar words as well as join in with a giant sneeze and slap the table whenever things fall down 'flat'.
