Book Review and Giveaway: Carmen’s Sticky Scab. Ends Oct 14th

Carmen’s Sticky Scab by Ginger Churchill illustrated by Barry Gott.

When poor Carmen gets a scab on her arm, everyone warns her of the perilous consequences of picking it, from infection to pain to shark attacks! Children will giggle and gasp at this wacky look at a common trial of childhood.

My Review: Children are always fascinated about their scab and can not wait to scratch it. They don’t know that by picking the scab it could get infected. You would love the ending which will make you laugh out loud or not…lol! Carmen’s Sticky Scab is easy to read and enjoyed by children of all ages. I love love the illustrations by Barry Gott, it helped tell the story. I highly recommend this book.

Age: 4-8

Pages: 32

  3. My boys would love this and I can definitely see the various reasons that kids can come up with on why you shouldn’t pick your scab and I’m sure this is highly entertaining while being educational at the same time.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. This would be perfect for my accident prone daughter…she always has scabs and tends to pick at them without realizing it.

  7. I am guilty of warning against infection. I think this looks like a unique children’s book that will appeal to kids because of the subject manner alone. What kid don’t think scabs are cool?

  8. I think everyone can relate to this story because we’ve all had scabs and it does take restraint to not pick at them.

  9. My kids are constantly getting little scabs – on their faces!! My husband freaks out each time he sees a new one – and threatens them with the “someday you’ll care that you have a scar on your face” speech! I think it would be a hoot to read this to them!
