“An awesome tool to teach kids how to avoid spreading germs!”

“This is an amazing resource (that teaches kids how to reduce germ sharing) disguised as a hilariously entertaining adventure”

“Your Kid’s will love to copy Barry Booger’s Big Ride to the Outside…and that’s a good thing for basic illness prevention!”



I wish this book was mandatory reading at every preschool. Every time I see my kids’ preschool classes, there is a child with a finger in his nose or mouth. Kids are naturally curious and they explore their noses and the contents inside, but, unfortunately, this leads to some very unsanitary habits. This is the story of Barry, a Booger, who yearns for a tissue. Barry catches germs inside your nose and when it’s time, he hopes you’ll blow your nose and send him on the Big Boogie Ride.

The Big Boogie Ride is like a roller coaster your boogies ride on when you blow your nose. They love it! Barry knows that some people pick their Boogers with their fingers and don’t send them on the Big Boogie Ride. He witnesses this happening to his good friend Bridget. Barry’s story educates the reader about the function of Boogers. It is also a fun narrative that motivates children to reach for tissues and blow their noses and thereby send Barry on the Big Booger Ride.

Now when a child feels his nose running, he knows it’s Barry, ready and waiting to go on the Big Boogie Ride! What a fun and sanitary option for our kids.

Marijke Vroomen Durning, RN, lives in Montreal, Canada. She has been a nurse since 1983, and writing and editing health information since the mid-1990s. Over the course of her career as a nurse, Marijke has given out thousands of doses of medicine and answered many drug-related questions from patients and their relatives. She enjoys writing patient education information to help people understand their medical and health conditions. She often tells clients that writing health information is like the patient teaching that nurses want to do, but often don’t have the time for in the hospital setting.

Marijke also has experience with prescription medications on a personal level, for herself and for her own children when they were young. She clearly remembers a few incidents when errors had been made by people prescribing the drugs and in one case, dispensing them. Her knowledge caught the mistakes before harm could be done.

Now a health writer, Marijke has written for online and print outlets, such as Costco Connection,, Nursing 2013, HealthDay News, and more.  Marijke is the author of the new book:

About the Book:

Marijke -Just The Right DoseIn Just the Right Dose: Your Smart Guide to Prescription Drugs & How to Take Them Safely, you’ll find answers to the most common questions about over-the-counter and prescription medications, as well as tips on topics such as:

  • Understanding your prescription
  • Why it’s important to follow the directions,
  • What types of pills you should never break or chew, and why
  • The most common types of medicines (such as cream, suppositories, injections)
  • Remembering to take your medications
  • Swallowing that pill or capsule
  • Getting rid of unused drugs
  • And more!

Taking medicines is a daily ritual for many people. Others rarely fill a prescription or take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Whichever category you fall into, it’s important to understand what drugs you’re taking or giving to someone else. From what may seem like secret codes on prescriptions to what to do if you have side effects, there can be many questions about the medications.

When I worked as a nurse, I learned that many people weren’t familiar with their prescription drugs. Some didn’t know the names, others didn’t know the dosages. It wasn’t unusual for a patient or a family member to hand over one pill bottle with several types of pills in it.

Not understanding prescription drugs can put you or someone you care for at risk. This short, easy-to-understand book explains the basics of prescription medicines, along with many tips on how to deal with them. Connect with Marijke and her new book at:

* Just The Right Dose * MedHealthWriter * The Nurse Writer *



“Just the Right Dose” is just the right remedy for medication misunderstandings and mistakes. It’s the answer to all those “little” questions we didn’t think to ask our doctors or didn’t think were important enough to bother our pharmacists about when we’ve picked up prescriptions or over-the-counter medicines.
– Peggy J. Noonan [], journalist


This book provides just the right dose of reason and rationale, and reminds us that medications aren’t to be played with, but are to be respected. “Just The Right Dose” is required reading for those of us who want to safely manage this important aspect of our own healthcare.

You are the author of Questionable Autism and other books on mental and emotional development. But before we discuss your book, I was hoping you could tell us a bit about your career as an educator and school psychologist – and how you started to work with children that presented developmental challenges.Susan_Peterson

I’ve taken an incredible journey into the public schools and worked in the tough inner city public schools of Las Vegas, Nevada for twenty years as a teacher and later as a school psychologist. My experiences include teaching and assessing students in at-risk situations from preschool to high school.

My work has included making thousands of home visits in the inner city housing projects of Las Vegas and conducting hundreds of parent meetings to encourage parents to help their children succeed. When I first started teaching, I only briefly heard the word ‘autism’, but this soon changed. Later, my interests lead me to be a school psychologist at a school diagnostic center working with early childhood students displaying developmental delays and autism concerns.


Autism (especially with regard to potential causes, diagnoses and caregiving) is such a difficult challenge for affected families. Can you give us some background on autism as a diagnosed condition. The big question is: What is autism?

We know that autism presents differently in children and they do not all appear to look or act the same way. I once heard a teacher of children with autism say that her class greatly varied in skills and abilities and that she had to really vary her teaching style and strategies. In many cases of autism we know that it significantly impacts the child’s communication and socialization skills as well as a variety of behaviors (i.e. repetitive behaviors, restricted interests or responds to sensory issues or changing routines).


What are the generally acknowledged causes…if known?

I really have difficulty answering this question because almost everyday
I hear a new cause or possible cause for autism. I will say autism is being
researched by many professionals so it is interesting to see their different
points of view.


You have conducted over 1000 multi-team assessments on young children with possible autism and developmental delays. What major trends have you seen during your career?

I see a bunch of confusion about autism, especially for parents. Parents often confuse autism and general developmental delays in children. Professionals are also confused and sometimes disagree about autism from different training and experiences.


In your book Questionable Autism are you speaking more to parents or to the professional community that performs evaluations?

I think the book, Questionable Autism speaks equally to parents and professionals. It is written to open up discussions about autism and to ask some questions we could think about as we explore the many issues of autism.


What are some of the biggest challenges facing educators and medical professionals when diagnosing development challenges?

There are many challenges for professionals related to testing, screening and identifying children with autism. Many of these challenges are discussed in the book Questionable Autism with possible questions to reflect on these challenges.


What do you want readers to know most about autism?

I hope the readers of Questionable Autism will see that autism is not the easiest area to understand and that there are many questions that could be asked about autism eligibilities and general clarifications about autism.


What do you hope that readers will take away from your book?

I want the readers of Questionable Autism to understand that there are different philosophies about autism in different agencies, school districts and organizations. As well individuals, parents and professionals can have quite a range of opinions about the field or autism.

Amazing Author & Champion for Children – Ebony Moore

Meet Author: Ebony Moore

Empowering Children with Valuable Life Skills

Ebony Moore is an author/illustrator with over 40 titles in print. Moore developed a love for writing and illustrating when she was five years old and has been writing every since that time. Moore has created books in a variety of genres.

After experiencing financial crisis that led to homelessness, she was inspired to publish her first novel, “In the Fire, the Beginning”, in 2006, a fictitious account of an African American family’s struggle to survive and overcome various trials and tribulations.

Growing up in an impoverished community and broken home inspired Moore to pour into the lives of both children and parents. In 2007, Moore wrote and illustrated “It Is Not Polite To Be A Bully” , ”When I Am Sad,”  “When I Believe,” “When My Parents Argue” and “My Favorite Color Is…”

Her desire to help make a difference in the lives of children was still unsatisfied, so In 2008, Moore concluded a series of children’s books called “The Mya Collection” which includes “Earning and Saving Money”, “Fire Safety With Roy” , “Mya Meets Barack Obama” , “Grandma’s House” , “I Can Be” , “When I Am Adopted” , “When I Told A Lie” , “This Is The Way We Count To Ten” , “The Book Of ABC’s” , “The Books Of Shapes” and “The Book Of Numbers.”

After suffering from sensorineural hearing loss in her right ear, bed-ridden and recovering from a stroke that affected an auditory nerve on the right side of her brain, her inspiration only grew stronger, pushing Moore to birth “The Learning Life Skills With Mya Character Education Series”, a series of 19 books designed to aid parents and teachers in delivering life skills to preschool and elementary children.

Having unlocked the shackles of poverty, Moore longed to persuade and encourage others to overcome similar situations. In 2011, she wrote an empowering self-help spiritual book called “The Time Is Now: Activating Kingdom Wealth In Your Life” which motivates and helps people of all ages discover purpose and propel into their divine destiny. She readily attributes all her success to God who is the source of all her resources.

Concerned about children’s safety during the massive tornadoes that hit the United States in 2012, Moore also created “Tornado Safety With Roy.” And Moore is responsible for the creation of Mya Kids, LLC (, a global provider of children books and the creator of the cartoon character “MYA.” Moore is also founder of The Mya Foundation, a foundation that promotes literacy and provides learning resources for economically distressed children.

About the Author:  Hannah Hoobyar

Hannah, otherwise known as Yoga Bear, has been an active child her entire life. After some traumatic experiences in her young childhood Hannah turned to Yoga as a way to help calm herself and deal with the stresses of life. If it weren’t for yoga Hannah would have had a much more difficult time getting through some of her challenges. Moving forward as she grew and matured she found yoga offered her a calmness in the face of daily challenges of being a kid…friends, school, homework, etc. She often uses yoga to calm herself before a test, to stay in control of her emotions throughout the trials and tribulations of middle school, and to keep her body in top shape for her competitive dance.
People who know her consider her to possess a unique energy that draws others in. Her personality is infectious, she can make you smile just by sharing a room with you. Her heart is very giving, and it is that giving nature that drives her to create her website and share yoga with others. She hopes to create a DVD of some basic yoga that she used when she was young and share that with other young children who are dealing with traumatic issues in their lives.  Yoga has changed her life and she is hoping to share that with others.
