the booger boogie (the playdate kids)

Summary:
Achoo! It happens to all of us. This short story about the etiquette of blowing your nose is complemented with a simple rhyming song to help kids remember to grab a tissue instead of their sleeve.
Educational Themes:
The story, music and body facts page let you talk about sneezes and blowing your nose as colloquially or as scientifically as you want. If you can read sheet music, you can play the song live!
Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
5 to 7
Recommended Age To Read Together:
3 to 6
Age of child:
Started reading with child nearly 6 years old.
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy. Your kids will like the book and music, and you will likely need to pull it out as a reminder for a couple of cold/flu seasons.
Little Kid Reaction
Our child couldn't read this book enough. We read it a couple of times, but then all s/he wanted to do was look at the pictures while listening to the CD. Ultimately the book was cast aside to sing/dance with the music.
Big Kid Reaction
Although the book may introduce vocabulary you don't like, it will get your child focused on the PROCESS of blowing their noses. The upbeat song makes it easy for them to remember.
Pros:

This picture book/CD product gives kids information they will quickly absorb to help with that age-old problem of using your sleeves. The kid-friendly content is complemented by factual information to explain what happens in your body, too.

Cons:

The topic of explaining what happens (as well as the pictures) are graphic, so be prepared for "yuck" and "gross."
