New Book Teaches Kids the Importance of Eating their Veggies

Woodinville, Wash. (PRWEB) April 29, 2007

Teri Otwell’s new book Bubba and the Germ Army is an entertaining and vivid story about a young boy who refuses to eat the food he needs for good health, until he learns about the war going on inside his own body.

Every parent must endure the frequent battles of trying to get their children to eat healthily — in fact, sometimes, to eat anything at all! Parent and author Teri Otwell has experienced conflicts like this countless times. In her new book, Bubba and the Germ Army, she recounts the story of Bubba, a little boy who is sick yet still refuses to eat the foods that his body needs to recover. When Bubba falls asleep, he dreams of taking a trip inside his body, only to discover a massive war in progress.

During this dream, Bubba sees firsthand the pitched battles that take place between the evil germ army and the forces of good represented by his body’s immune system trying to protect his health. From this adventure, he learns the value of eating good food that will provide nourishment to help him overcome his illness and stay healthy. This fun and engaging story is ideal for parents to share with their children — especially before their kids dig in their heels and refuse to even try their vegetables.

“Otwell has written a charming book, one that should sit on the bookshelf in every house where a child resides.” – Ellen Tanner Marsh, New York Times best-selling author
