Interview With Uncle Sillyhead III
Bugs in the Classroom
Making of HERE COME THE TICKLE BUGS!
Safety on the Net
all for the nice feedback we've received for
HERE COME THE TICKLE BUGS!
children are silly, no kisses or hugs. Only tickles
from the Tickle Bugs!' HERE COME THE TICKLE BUGS
is a very colorful "interactive" story for young
children. Interactive in that it suggests that
parents tickle along while reading the story.
My 6-year-old begged me to read it at least twenty
times during the first few days we had it, just
for that reason. Every time the page said "Here
come the tickle bugs!" she squealed with delight
as she was tickled too. The story was very simple
and cute, the illustrations colorful, vibrant,
and eye-appealing-no scary bugs here. And, the
most important part, my daughter loved it. Here's
the conversation after reading it the first time:
"So, did you like it?" "Yes! I love it! I love
it so much! Read it again. Read it again." Why
not put your child to the "tickle" test? Your
little ones will enjoy this, and you'll enjoy
making them laugh. I did."
year old granddaughter got Here Come The Tickle
Bugs! for Christmas. We have had so much fun reading
it together! Not only is it great to read(and
tickle), but the play spills over to our daily
activities. When she does something silly, I will
say "You know what happens to kids who are silly..."
and Nora says (with glee!) "They get tickles!"
and she's laughing even before the Tickle Bugs
attack. Sometimes, I'm the silly one, and Nora
tickles me. It's become a wonderful addition to
our lives. Thanks!"

"I purchased two copies
for each of my children, one to read and love
and the other to put away and cherish once they
are older! The author actually autographed them
for me!!!! My kids love the bright colors and
simple easy to follow text. I was a preschool
teacher while completing my education and now
I am the Superintendent of a large East Bay School
District! I can't wait till Uncle Sillyhead comes
out with more books! This is a definite 'To Buy'
book for anyone that cherishes reading time with
their children. This is a great first reader book

the feel of the paper so good. It really boggles
the mind to think of all the production elements
that went into putting it all together!"

illustrated and engaging children's book I've
seen! Inspired me to dream of fun things. I've

Come the Tickle Bugs! was a delight from the first
reading. It has become a "must read"
during Book Choice time in my class. The children
giggle and think it's so funny. Tickle Bugs has
sparked their imaginations. The children pretend
to be Tickle Bugs. They have asked for more Tickle

I gave it to my friend's three year old son for
his birthday, I was amazed. I don't think I could
have given a better gift. He loves this book and
is crazy about the Tickle Bugs. He literally carries
it around with him wherever he goes! On so many
levels, this is a very special book for kids."

"Jack loves the Ticklebugs!
This sounds 'silly,' but I'm impressed with the
quality of the paper in the book. Jack tends to
tear the pages in books or magazines, but Ticklebugs
