Reviews for Nits

Highly recommended. The kindness of Simon, staying true to Lou and not joining in teasing or isolating Lou, is a message that comes across strongly in the book. -- Pat Pledger * ReadPlus * The simple clear illustrations underline the straightforward message contained in the book, and will appeal to the target audience of early primary readers. Astute teachers will use this book as an introduction to the prevalence of nits within school communities and take the opportunity to encourage preventative action as well as showing the children how they can be managed. * ReadPlus * Early learning educators and teachers are presented with ample opportunity to cover topics such as compassion, kindness and acceptance, while parents can have a chuckle at the lighter side of dealing with nits! And who wouldn't want to make some awesome superhero masks? A cute and colourful story with a universal message of acceptance and kindness makes for a winning combination. * CBCA: Reading Time *
