Friends and Family
The story and plush are a great gift to give a friend in need. We’ve found that it touches the hearts of patients and even siblings who are trying to understand what is going on around them.
The book is a fun read-aloud story that can lift spirits, trigger conversations and create a bond with their own monster inside. They can encourage the children to share their worries and fears, as well as the goodness they hold in their heart. By removing the Germ Freakies in the belly each night, parents can participate in the magic of Gobble’s appetite.
Guided Imagery Therapists
The book is a great tool for introducing the concept of Guided Imagery Therapy to patients of all ages. Until now, there are no other children’s stories that address this storyline. They can help the children learn to share their feelings by writing things together on the Germ Freaky notepad.
