Lice . . . . . ew.  Just . . . . . EW!  But they are a fact of life and aren't shy about making the rounds at work, at school, at home.  A child's first reaction upon learning he or she has lice is often shame, thinking that they are dirty or must have done something wrong to have been infested.

David Shannon's approach is both informative and whimsical.  He helps children understand that they aren't alone and they shouldn't be ashamed.  He explains the process for ridding a person of lice, letting them know that it could be a lengthy proposition, and one that may need to be repeated.  He talks about where they possibly could have picked them up. 

And he does all this while making them smile, and that's a good thing.

Happy Reading!
