We've all seen it - the nose-picking habit starts as early as the toddler years, and no child is the exception. Young children pick their noses for a variety of reasons, from colds to allergies to curiosity or boredom. This board book for toddlers and preschoolers is the answer to the age-old question "How can I get my child not to pick, especially not in public?" With her trademark humor and kid-friendly support, the author helps guide little ones toward healthier habits, like using a tissue and washing their hands. Catchy words help children remember what to do; vibrant illustrations bring the words to life. Throughout, the positive message shines through: noses are for breathing, sniffing, smelling . . . but not for picking!
