My Cold Went on Vacation by Molly Rausch- Funny illustrations as a young child wonders where their cold came from as they very literally believe a cold is a little being that travels around. A fun way to introduce what a cold is to kids.

Boo Hoo Bird by Jeremy Tankard- Bird gets bonked on the head and all the forest animals try to comfort him in their own way.
