The Day Snuffy Had the Sniffles is a 1988 Sesame Street Little Golden Book.

Mr. Snuffleupagus has the sniffles, and Big Bird is on his way to Snuffy's cave to cheer him up.

Along the way, everybody that Big Bird meets gives him a cheer-up present to bring to Snuffy. Oscar gives him a jar of sardine-and-sauerkraut soup, Bert loans Snuffy his bottlecap collection, and Cookie Monster contributes a box of cookie crumbs. Betty Lou, the Count and Gladys the Cow also have presents for Snuffy.

When Big Bird gets to Snuffy's cave, he feels embarrassed -- everyone has a present for Snuffy, and he forgot to bring anything himself. Plus, he's left a trail of dripping ice cream everywhere. However, Snuffy tells Big Bird that visiting him is a good enough gift.
