Pick, Spit & Scratch: The Science of Disgusting Habits. Julia Garstecki

This is a seriously charming (in a child's way) science book for younger ones with bad habits, or perhaps, slowly acquiring a habit.
The language is appropriate as such.

The images are awesome, creative and in time with the tale.  A parent or caregiver should have no problem engaging a germane audience with Pick, Spit & Scratch.  They were probably thinking about doing one or all three at any given moment anyway.
