Where do boogers actually go? And where should they go?
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.
A new children’s book about Boogers poised to reduce germs and save desks and sleeves.
Kids put boogers everywhere. It’s disgusting. Author Baker Andrews and Illustrator Sean Long tackle this sticky topic in the new children’s book Where A Booger Goes. With catchy rhymes and beautiful, colorful, hilarious illustrations, Andrews’ book aims to educate and delight with equal parts laughter and gross-outs.
“When I worked with kids, I saw a lot of…interesting habits as far as booger disposal goes. I figured I could help parents, teachers and society at large if I wrote a book that could help get boogers in their right place.” says Andrews about the creation of the book.
Andrews worked with children directly in his prior role with St. Louis’ Special School District before shifting professional gears and jumping into the children’s authorship pool, which replaces literal boogers with literary ones.
Where a Booger Goes, Andrews’ first book, highlights inappropriate booger-disposal habits by several cartoon children before reaching the conclusion of where a booger truly belongs. The illustrated boogers in the book are full of character and personality, and manage to be disgusting and adorable at the same time.
Andrews will be available for book signing events at independent book stores and other venues starting on 11/01/2017. He will also be available for reading and speaking events at libraries, schools, and religious institutions. Reading/speaking engagements run approximately 60 minutes, and conclude with a motivational speech written around the institution’s mission statement, slogan, or any other guiding principles requested.
