Who doesn’t love summer? Well, our cautious pal Chance, for one. Just the thought of flea and tick season makes him scratch. He’s read that this season promises to be one of the worst and he needs some help combating fleas. His Snoutz pals know to take these dangerous little creatures seriously. But they’d love to get Chance out of the house. Sophie read that one of the most important preventions against fleas is healthy skin. Imagine! Veterinarian Richard Pitcairn, who wrote Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats, is big on good grooming. He points out that dry skin attracts fleas and advises pet parents to frequently brush and comb their pets’ coats. “Frequent brushing and combing stimulates hair and skin health, bringing normal secretions from oil glands onto the skin and discouraging fleas,” says Pitacairn. He also encourages fewer baths. Too much soap and water can strip away those natural oils. Please recommend any other natural remedies against fleas and ticks. Weigh in in the comments. Thanks.

I highly recommend ‘Pipper’s Secret Ingredient’ to parents who want to excite their children’s imagination and to educators and librarians who use literature to tap into a wealth of learning.

As an artist, I really enjoyed the illustrations.

Pipper’s Secret Ingredient is a wild ride! Children will find this story fun and “delicious” while they explore exotic locales, sample culinary delights, and get exposed to varied cultures. It is rare to find a fictional children’s story that also incorporates such a heaping portion of non-fiction. The rich vocabulary and beautiful illustrations further enhance this imaginative tale.

I hope Pipper visits Santiago one day.
