My 5 year old loves this book! It is a perfect beginning to read book. I only had to help him with a few words and he was able to read it himself! That is very important at this age, it gives him a sense of accomplishment. When he has read it to himself he takes it a lot more serious. He reads it every night while I'm getting his bath ready.

A Stinkin' Adorable Book! It is full of concepts and moral teachings that every child should know. What a fantastic series of health and wellness books! We homeschool, and my children feel as if they personally know Maggie. We have used this book as a springboard for having heart to heart conversations with our children. It touches on many concepts and moral teachings: the importance of personal hygiene, social appropriateness, decision making, truth telling and obeying. We cannot wait to add the next Maggie McNair book to our collection!

This book was perfect for my 9 year old who didn't always bathe properly. She read the story 3 times in one day! Now, she can't wait for the new book to come out. What a fun way to get some not-so-fun issues corrected! Highly recommend!

Maggie McNair is a favorite character in our house!! Since we started reading about her adventures and lessons that she learns on personal hygiene, I hear my children telling other children how to get rid of sugar bugs and those crazy spiders in their hair. Thank you Maggie McNair for taking the "chore" out of personal hygiene!!
