Enter To Win An Adorable Children's Picture Book - Sugar Bugz, They Live On Your Teeth


Sugar Bugz Children's Picture Book
This month I'm giving away one of those must-have children's picture books in your collection, Sugar Bugz, They Live On Your Teeth!

The Sugar Bugz, They Live On Your Teeth children's picture book inspires children to take care of their teeth in a delightful and upbeat way. This colorful and educationally, entertaining book centers on the silly and mischievous Sugar Bugz, while effectively encouraging good dental habits like eating fruits and vegetables, and brushing up and down and all around. It also touches on flossing, when to brush, and making those special trips to the dentist. Something every child needs to do.

I really enjoyed this story! But I am known to be a huge sucker for cute, entertaining children's picture books; especially ones that rhyme and have the most adorable characters, like the Sugar Bugz. Since I want to offer you the best books on my blog, I thought I would put this book through a true children's book test--reading it to kids! So I rounded up my three elementary aged children and read it to them, never giving them a clue that they were reviewing this book. And not surprisingly, all three gave it a thumbs up! In fact, my ten year old son asked me why I hadn't gotten this book for him sooner. He thought it would had been helpful when he was just learning to brush his teeth.

But that was just the start of their curiosity. After I read it, my nine year old boy / girl twins took it and continued browsing through the pages, soaking in the information. After about fifteen minutes later, my twin daughter handed the book to me and said, "Really cute book, mom." Then she went off to play.

That evening, as my kids were just about to brush their teeth, all three of them asked me if I would read this book to them again. I smiled and said, "Yes!" So we cuddled and read the story again. The illustrations made them giggle. And the story encouraged them to brush, brush, and brush. In fact, my nine year old twin son, who I have to beg and remind at least a dozen times a day to brush his teeth, finally is brushing them without me having to stay on top of him. Those Sugar Bugz did their job in the story, encouraging him to take better care of his teeth!
 
The story and illustrations aren't the only thing that makes this book so special. The author, Stacy Piper, truly is an inspiration to all of us moms and dads who have an idea for a children's book and take the step in making it happen! The Sugar Bugz story started when Stacy's children were little. She and her husband told them about the sugar bugs that lived on their teeth, and it worked like a charm in helping to get their teeth clean. Wanting to share her story with others, Stacy researched and interviewed dentists, making sure that her story included the most important and effective dental practices. And now Stacy, with the help of Lori Escobar, is able to share her story with your family in the Sugar Bugz, They Live On Your Teeth children's picture book.

Meet Stacy Piper, the author of Sugar Bugz, and Lori Escobar, the illustrator:

This DOES look adorable! And helpful! We actually have never had problems getting our son, now 5, to let us brush his teeth or to brush his own -- it's twice a day, every day, like clockwork. However, his *technique* could certainly be upgraded!! It's been hard for us to explain to him how to do it ("just watch how mommy does it!" doesn't seem to work so well... ;)!), so this book would be a great help. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

PS--I do follow!

What a great book, I am almost sad that my kids are old enough to know about teeth brushing, but I have a niece that giver her folks a world of trouble each day on this subject so I will recommend this one to her! I would like to recommend a couple Christmas time books if anyone is looking which is what I am doing today. Barbara Ward's The Reindeer Keeper and The Snowman Maker, info on her site barbarabriggsward.com. I am glad I came here today, my sis might be pleased to if she can find anything that helps her get through dental care everyday with her munchkin!
