Overview

Take the sting out of boo-boos with this ingenious board book that clever closes with a bandage and teaches kids about everything from scabs to broken bones. There's something fun on every spread!

Ouch! Kids know what happens when they break a toy, but what about a broken bone? Or a scraped knee? They'll have a wild time finding out the answers with this novelty-packed peek at every kind of boo-boo, with a delightful text written in rhyme. There's amazing stuff to touch, feel, and do -- a whole medicine bag full of fun. Sign a cast and then left the flap to see what a broken bone really looks like. Lace up ribbon stitches, and learn how they help an injury heal. For the ultimate "yuck" factor, run your fingers over sandpaper scratches and scabs. Learning about bruises and bumps has never been so entertaining.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book—intended to help children through the falls, scrapes and even the broken bones of childhood—uses a slightly bloodthirsty poem to accompany the eleven double-page spreads of extra heavy board pages. Yes, it's a thick one. The copy I examined was locked down with a Velcro closing so effective that it pulled the front tab right out of the book. There are five lift-the-flaps as well as cutouts with tactile fillings, such as imitation x-ray film, canvas to simulate the wrapping on a sprain, and a piece of sandpaper to suggest a scab. How do you like, "Skin has layers—one and two. A cut that's deep has sliced right through."? Or, "(you) crashed your bike. And now your knee is bleeding. What makes it hurt and drip and squirt?" This book may help to sooth a wound that's healing, but may not be right for the child already fearful of blood and boo boos. 2006, Lark Books, Ages 4 to 7.
