Boogie the Booger teaches little pickers and flickers the healthy way to blow their noses by using a “Booger Ghost.”
Boogie knows that most people think he is gross, and that some people even call him a snot.
But, he doesn’t feel bad, because he does great things! He keeps us from getting sick! He is a true defender and is just asking for a little respect!
As an educator, parent, and incredibly creative children’s book author, Julia Cook proves once again that she clearly knows how to pick her topics. This time around, the subject is non other than the disrespectful treatment of boogers. The strong undertones of good hygiene and infection control are well-disguised by humor and hilarious illustrations, and a few well-placed tissues. This book is sure to put boogers in their rightful place and make everyone who reads it laugh out loud!”

“Who knew boogers would command so much respect? This delightful book is certain to entertain children and educate them about an important bodily defense against illness.”
