What makes the 'Sugar Bugz' Book Team proud?
The number one thing that makes us so proud and happy is when we hear that our book has helped children and families with better brushing, flossing and nutritional habits!
We will often hear that after reading the 'Sugar Bugz, They Live On Your Teeth' book, children will WILLINGLY brush their teeth AND they will accept assistance from caregivers. This is such GREAT news!!
The Author, Stacy Piper, wanted to publish this book because making sure her children would brush, rinse and floss was so important and she knew her and her husband needed to be able to help finish the job. Kids do their best and we are so proud of them. But sometimes they need parents and caregivers to get into their mouths and get to places that might have gotten missed. We are told, time and time again, that the 'Sugar Bugz' Book specifically helps with these challenges.
The bright pictures and simple text really get the kid's attention. The first portion of the book focuses on how the 'Sugar Bugz' get into our mouths and the damage they can do. They REALLY DO move in and multiply if not brushed off!
There is a transition page regarding eating healthier foods like Apples. This is a great page for educators to emphasis what we eat makes a big impact on our dental health.
The remainder of the book centers on how to get the 'Sugar Bugz' out of your mouth each day! The book successfully covers each of the important dental hygiene points like brushing, flossing, rinsing, and going to the dentist. "Floss between those pearly white teeth, because those bugs are way down deep".
We consistently get feedback that kids want to read the book over and over again AND they want to get those 'Sugar Bugz' off their teeth EVERY DAY!
