Sticky Icky Booger Bugs by Sherry Frith is about a day in the life of a young boy living with Cystic Fibrosis. Because of the subject matter, I expected it to be educational. And it is. Although the whimsical title and illustrations should have given me a clue, I was also pleasantly surprised by how cute Frith’s picture book is.

Frith wrote Sticky Icky Booger Bugs after two of her own sons were diagnosed with this chronic disease for which there currently is no cure. She starts by introducing us

I love the idea behind this book. The author wrote the book to help her children deal with and explain their cystic fibrosis. It describes the daily process required to keep children healthy and out of the hospital who deal with this disease.

I have a nephew who has CF. He was diagnosed at 4 months old. We drove out to Gig Harbor, Washington to visit (we live in Utah), and while there he was hospitalized and received the diagnosis. It was scary to hold an infant and see that he was checking out.

Sticky Icky Booger Bugs is an inspiring story about a little boy named Kory and the challenges he faces each day as he lives with Cystic Fibrosis.

Kory wakes each morning to start a routine of breathing treatments, inhalers, and medication and ends his day in pretty much the same way. Through it all he never complains and finds comfort in his mother's love and dedication. Despite his illness, Kory is a regular kid who like video games, soccer, and playing with his friends.

Kory's story encourages

This is a tale about a boy named Kory who has Cystic Fibrosis and documents his daily routine as he goes about battling this disease so he won't have to go to the hospital. With his medicine routine he puffs his inhaler, dons his shaker vest, eats good food, and always remembers to take his pep and gas-attack pills. He is a normal boy who loves to play soccer, loves recess and playing outdoors with his best friend Cody as they explore their neighbourhood in costume. It is a daily battle of keepi ...more

Sherry Frith gave an honest and heartfelt account of the daily battle children with cystic fibrosis encounter.

The book is geared to both kids and adults, with warm illustrations and catchy narrative, that set a comfortable mood. Never did the diagnosed boy feel different from the others. In fact, he played and ate a regular diet, enjoying company with friends. Instead, we understood the importance of keeping the disease under control. And that when a disease strikes home, the family must become
