Sticky Icky Booger Bugs by Sherry Frith is a picture book which gives children a clear idea of what cystic fibrosis is. Based on a true life story on her son Kory, Sherry shares with her readers about how she and her son copes with this progressive disease.
Both Sherry’s sons, Kory and Kevin, were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Through the picture book she gives a clear explanation on how they cope with the disease and enjoy doing what other kids their age do. It is possible for kids with cystic fibrosis to live a near normal live and keep the disease under control.
Through illustrations the reader follows Kory through one day of his life from when he wakes up in the morning and have his medication till the time he falls asleep at night.
I found this book really informative and read it together with my 3 kids.The explanation given about cystic fibrosis together with the illustrations makes it easy for even a young child to understand. It is a good tool to help explain this disease to a child and get them to understand how it is possible for kids with cystic fibrosis to lead normal lives.
Having learned about the amount of medication that Kory had to take on a daily basis they are even more thankful that they are healthy and treasure their health even more now.
