It’s one of those days for Bob. He’s not feeling well, but his mom is making him go to school anyway. Even worse, Bob must deliver homework to his best friend, Joe, who got to stay home! Oh, there’s one more thing. Everyone seems to be staring . . . for some reason. Will anyone have the courage to tell him why? Bob’s Booger is a story about friendship that will have kids giggling all the way to the tissue box!
I don't know about how things go in your house, but if I want to get a point across to my 5- or 9-year-old, I have to make it funny. And if I can use a gross body reference (just use your imagination here), so much the better!
This story is a great, new twist on the Golden Rule and will give them a real-life example that they can understand of what it means to be a friend.
The illustrations are really fun. The cutouts are clean and crisp but not so sophisticated as to be inaccessible to the imagination of a child. This has inspired me to encourage my kids to push beyond crayons and markers to express a story.
Great book and well worth the price!
