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 pre-schoolers is the answer to the age-old question: 'How can I get my child not to pick, especially not in public?'

With gentle humour and kid-friendly support, this board book for toddlers and pre-schoolers helps guide little ones away from nose picking toward healthier habits, like using a tissue and washing their hands. Catchy words help children remember what to do; vibrant full-colour illustrations bring the words to life. Throughout, the positive message shines through: noses are for breathing, sniffing, smelling . . . but not for picking!

Part of the award-winning Best Behavior series.
