Having worked in an elementary school, I was shocked to learn the answer to the first question. And I now see the importance of teaching the answer to the second question. But fear not, young readers. This book is fun and funny. It’s full of rhymes, jokes, and silly images. Hopefully, you will laugh out loud. And if you happen to learn something along the way, all the better.
Baker Andrews prepared for a career painting tiny boogers by earning a law degree from the University of Missouri then going on to earning a Master’s of Business Taxation from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. After a ten-year career as a corporate consultant, he took a sabbatical to work for the Special School District of St. Louis County, where he learned where boogers actually go (and that a kindergartener will only hand you something to open after they’ve tried using their teeth).
"Great book. The book shows the proper way for kids to dispose of their boogers. I read it to my kids and they were enthralled. It's worth picking up for anyone with young kids."
"Great preschool age book. My 4 year olds think this is hilarious and they want to put their boogers on tissues, which is great."
"Funny, original, educational! I really enjoyed this highly book about boogers (or bogies as we call them in the UK). As the father of a five-year-old boy who, much to my disgust, likes to eat his boogers, I took great pleasure in reading this to him, so that he could see that it's not just his parents that thinks eating boogers is bad. However, while this book does have an underlying message about the importance of hygiene, it is not preachy or dull. It has hilarious rhymes throughout and stunning illustrations to boot."
"Fun, gross, and entertaining! I love the concept of this book. The illustrations are wonderful. Two very talented people produced this book."
