This little book provides a wonderful lesson about throwing candy wrappers in trash bins.The author uses repetition of words and phrases to drive home the point that wrappers with candy on them attract beetles, mice and birds.The image of pulling a mouse, instead of a candy bar out of a pant pocket reminded me of The Pied Piper. The need to wear white to hide bird droppings is hilarious. The author needs to provide a few illustrations. These can be created by taking pictures of animals and playground equipment, some subjects in this story, and using available digital converting software to turn those pictures into cartoons. The author has mastered child level story-telling. The next step is illustrating the story to enhance the experience for the child.
