Reptile Flu: A story about communication

Written by Kathryn Cole and Illustrated by Qin Leng

 

Kamal is almost as afraid of being teased as he is of meeting a snake

Kamal tries everything to avoid his school trip to the live reptile exhibit – everything except admitting that he is scared. His fear of being teased is almost as big as his fear of reptiles. Finally, in desperation, Kamal communicates his fears in a way everyone understands, and is able to get the confidence he needs to face his fears.

Praise for Reptile Flu

"Young audiences of this book will relate to the idea of having fears that they may find difficulty in expressing. Seeing Kamal find his voice, and truly be heard, may help young readers find their own confidence to express themselves." - CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"Though Cole employs a straightforward approach to telling the stories [in the I'm A Great Little Kid series], their content is anything but simplistic. The author provides plenty of fodder for course content for character-education programs and thought-provoking and insightful classroom discussions about ethics, morals and values." - Canadian Children's Book News

"If Never Give Up and Reptile Flu are an indication of the wisdom and significance of the I’m a Great Little Kid series–even the series name works to promote a positive message!–I think all young CanLit readers and their parents and teachers should be anticipating more worthwhile titles to add to their libraries, personal and school." - CanLit for Little Canadians
