Have you ever been tempted to put something in your ear, or up your nose? Don’t do it, that’s not where that stuff goes. Food in your mouth, OK, smelling a rose, OK, glasses over your eyes, OK! But nothing in your ears or in your nose. Nothing, I Say! The authors, Dr. Jerald Altman and Richard Jacobsen have had experience with children and maybe even some adults putting things in their noses and ears. We all know noses are to smell with and to sneeze with. And we know ears are to hear with. If we put something in our ears, we can’t hear, who wants that. This is a wonderful story told in rhyme about keeping things out of our ears and noses. Things that just don’t belong. It is written with children in mind, but it is good advice for adults, also. Whatever you do, don’t put anything in your nose or your ears that don’t belong. Eggs in your nose, balloons in your ears, NO, NO, NO! The writing is superb told in a fun rhyme. The illustrations are colorful, vivid and bright, and depicts children as the storyline continues. What a wonderful time to discuss with children why we don’t put things in our ears, eyes and nose. There are consequences for our actions. Some of these things may seem silly, but isn’t it better to know what not to do to remain healthy. Parents/Teachers/children can have open discussions about this subject. Now, no spaghetti in your ears, no, never!
