Summary: 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.
            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.

This was a cute book.  It is a creative and fun way to teach kids the inappropriate things to stick in the different holes of their face/head.  The rhyming is fun and catchy too.

I read this to the kids, who wanted me to read it a few more times, and they spent the next few hours talking about all the things that you can't put in your ears, nose or mouth - even taught this to the dolls in the play area.
