A to Z Animals are not scratching!
This is a book that offers an ingenious, light hearted approach to teaching young children not to scratch. It is inspired by my baby girl, Marcie, who has eczema since 2 weeks old.
I wish that it will be in print one day (currently available as ebook) IT IS PRINTED so that all children, particularly those with eczema, can have fun learning not to scratch just as the A to Z animals are not scratching!
