Sticky Icky Booger Bugs Book Review and Giveaway
When I had the opportunity to review this book I definitely wanted to read it! I think it is great for a mom to teach others about their child that may be a little different as each child is!
Sherry Frith wrote Sticky Icky Booger Bugs after her sons, Kory and Kevin, were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease in which mucus clogs the lungs and prevents food from being digested. She wanted to explain aspects of the disorder using words and helpful illustrations they could understand.
Sticky Icky Booger Bugs is the tale of a boy’s battle with cystic fibrosis as he attempts to avoid the hospital. The main character is Kory, who is just like any other kid. He loves recess, playing soccer, and exploring his neighborhood with his best friend. The book shows how with every puff, cough, and sneeze, Kory keeps the sticky icky booger bugs away so he can have fun every day.
I didn't know myself that cystic fibrosis was an inherited disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. This book may have been written for children but I am sure many adults could learn from it as well.
While little girl is only a few days from being two, she learns a lot from reading. We read before nap time and bedtime and she always picks the books she wants to read. I feel she really does learn from them and can almost read some with me! Since this one is paperback I do keep it out of reach because paperbacks don't last long if in her reach still!
The book is very well illustrated by Carol Newell Walter.
Overall, we are enjoying reading about Sticky Icky Booger Bugs and think other families could benefit from reading it as well!
