Bedtime for Baby Book Reviews: Sammy's Broken Leg (Oh No!) and the Amazing Cast that Fixed It

Today is Tell a Story Day and what better day to share a great read with your kiddos.  

A few weeks ago, I received a copy of Sammy's Broken Leg (Oh No!) and the Amazing Cast that Fixed It from Cadence Book group. This heartwarming story tells the true story of how a cast helped a little girl who broke her femur bone learn patience. 
Sammy's Broken Leg (Oh No!) and the Amazing Cast that Fixed It was written by the child's grandmother, Judith Wolf Mandell, and is a reminder of the challenges, power and strength of our little ones.

Last month I shared how my son broke his ankle in a wrestling match and was in a cast for a few weeks and I remember how out of place he felt not being able to get around.  I just can't imagine how difficult it would be for a little one to be in a cast for several weeks while their body healed.  However, there is so much encouragement in Mandell's shares her granddaughter's story of triumph and healing.

 Meet Sammy: An hour ago she was fine. Then an "Oh, No!" fall broke her thigh bone. Hours later she woke to find herself in a purple fiberglass cast from her chest to her ankle. It's the same kind of cast used to treat children whose hips didn't grow right (hip dysplasia).

Sammy's life has turned topsy-turvy. She's sidelined from her favorite play, cast care is a bother, the days drag on. She becomes sad, angry, frustrated.

Meet the Amazing Cast: It looks like an ordinary huge purple cast, but it's not. It's amazing because it's brimful of kisses who cheer for Sammy and coach her to be patient. The Kisses are Sammy's secret; only she can hear their whispers.


Overall a cute read especially for little ones on the mend.  I really loved the part with a scroll of the doctor's rules while in the cast.  You know, don't get the cast wet, don't do this, don't do that, etc.  Unfortunately, it was one we could relate to due to my kid's injury. 

Buy It:  Sammy's Broken Leg (Oh No!) and the Amazing Cast that Fixed It is available at bookstores nationwide and Amazon.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
