About the Book: There are 30,000 children each year diagnosed and battling cystic fibrosis. There is no cure for this progressive disease.
Sticky Icky Booger Bugs is the tale of a boy’s battle with cystic fibrosis as he attempts to avoid the hospital. Kory is just like any other child. He loves recess, playing soccer and exploring his neighborhood with his best friend. With every puff, cough, and sneeze, Kory keeps the sticky icky booger bugs away so he can have fun every day! Sticky Icky Booger Bugs is a picture book for children ages 0 – 7.

My Review: This is a fun and educational book to help educate parents and children about cystic fibrosis. This thick and sticky mucus clogs the lungs and leads to a life threatening lung infections and obstructs the pancreas.
This story is about boy name Kory, who is battling cystic fibrosis that currently has no cure. Kory has to deal with this disease as it’s a part of his everyday life. He wakes up sneezing out sticky icky booger bugs. His mother helps him with his medicine routine. He uses his blue and purple inhaler and he wears the shaker vest for 30 minutes to help loosen the sticky booger bugs. Kory doesn’t allow this disease to stop him from play with his friends or his playing his favorite game soccer.
Sherry Frith wrote Sticky Icky Booger Bugs after her sons Kory and Kevin were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. The illustrations by Carol Newell Walter help to tell the story. I love her use of pencils and crayons.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
