Book Review/Giveaway: Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! Don’t Stuff Stuff In Your Ears! Ends May 21st

Dont Stick Sticks

Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! Don’t Stuff Stuff In Your Ears! Written by Jerald S. Altman, MD and Richard Jacobson.


About the Book: Stuff in their Ears? Sticks up their nose? Let’s keep things out of our kid’s ears and nose! Rhyming and beautiful, bright and colorful illustrations will gently remind children to avoid putting things where they don’t go! After 14 years of practice, Dr. Altman never ceases to be amazed at what children will think of to stick up their noses or stuff in their ears. From rocks to raisins, paper to peanuts, crayons to candy and buttons to beads, Dr. Altman has removed them all! Sometimes adults marvel at the wonderful curiosity of young children…until their inquisitive natures cause them to insert unimaginable objects into inappropriate places. It’s difficult to appreciate a child’s creativity when it might cause a medical emergency. Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! Don’t Stuff Stuff In Your Ears! explains to children, in a fun, colorful, and memorable way, why it’s a good idea to avoid such behavior. The kids will soon be repeating the rhyming verses while being gently reminded not to stick things up their noses and not to stuff things in their ears.


Pages: 22



My Review: Every household and nursery schools with a toddle should have a copy of “Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! Don’t Stuff Stuff In Your Ears!” This will help educate them before they start to experiment with a bean up their nose or trying to fit something into their ears.

The story told in rhyme is about keeping things like plants, food, small toys, rocks, pencils etc out of their ears and noses. Stuff like these can be very harmful to a child. Children must be taught that their ears are meant for listening/hearing and nose for smelling. The illustrations are funny, bold and colorful. I high recommend this book for classroom teaching.


FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

He is a general Otolaryngologist and he loves taking care of children’s ear, nose and throat issues. Accordingly, the idea for this book came from his pediatric patients and their incessant need to put things where they shouldn’t go!

  1. Ha! It’s funny you mentioned putting a bean up the nose, because my little brother did exactly that when he was younger! I agree, it’s probably better to read this book and talk about the consequences of these actions before children start experimenting themselves. And the fact that it’s fun and rhymes is even better.

  4. I always found that rhyming books seemed to make it easier for children to read, and those who were learning they loved the da da da da, seqeunce to it. It seemed to help them with the reading part. My learning disabled son always liked rhyming books with the rhythm, when he only had a portion of his hearing that is the one part that he could hear was the rhythm. So when he was learning to read of course we started with Dr. Suess, the most rhyming books there are and it was those books that he learned to read the easiest. I always enjoyed reading books to my kids that had rhyming stories because they would always try to follow even if they couldn’t ready because they would try to guess what it would say. Now it’s time with the 11 grandchildren!! Oh what fun!!
