Have you ever had bubble gum stuck in your hair?  Did your mom use vegetable oil or, even worse, scissors to remove it?  Can you imagine if your entire body was covered in hair and you popped a big ‘ol bubble gum bubble on your face?  The Peanut Buttor Tweatment tells the tale of mischievous little Bub who loves his grammy’s homemade bubble gum and finds himself in quite a sticky situation.  Peanut Butter to the rescue!

I have really been on a children’s book kick recently.  It is so fun to share all these neat, new books with my children and see their love for reading grow!  The Peanut Buttor Tweatment is a super cute little read that teaches kids all about following directions and facing consequences. 

The Harringtons, the characters of the story, are adorable little fuzz balls with big personalities.  Mom is kind yet firm.  Grammy is exactly what you want your grandmother to be, and she brings awesome gifts when she comes for a visit!  Bub is fun and a little naughty.  A family isn’t quite complete without the adorable, sometimes annoying, baby sister.

The story is easy and fun for a young child to read, but not too babyish for older children.  My kids and I really enjoyed the colorful illustrations on each page.  I definitely recommend this book for any age, but especially children in the 6–8 year range.
