About Maggie McNair: Maggie is a bit of a tomboy (making the stories appealing to both boys and girls) and her dream is to grow up to be a superhero. She’d rather catch tadpoles than play with dolls. She likes tree climbing better than tea parties– and she has some really cool friends that just happen to be a stink bug, a sugar bug and a spider! She and her bug buddies share stories about backyard adventures, nature, family, other countries, and much more. Maggie also learns along the way that part of having fun is learning about the importance of respect, being kind, and dependable.
Maggie began as the main character in a series of books: Maggie McNair Has Spiders in Her Hair, Maggie McNair Wears Stinky Underwear, and Maggie McNair Has Sugar Bugs in There, by author Sheila Booth-Alberstadt and illustrator Norris Hall. The books are approved for the National Accelerated Readers Program through elementary schools across the USA.
What they're saying about Maggie:
“…We (students and teachers) loved the stories. My students stated that the stories were “hysterical” and “so cute.” As an educator, to see my students so excited about literature is a wonderful thing… We were able to compare and contrast and discuss the importance of good hygiene. Thank you for helping to excite and encourage my kindergarten students.” - Maya Dudte, 2012 Teacher of the Year, 2013
“It has been a treat to read this story to our patients, as well as children in our community – including our own. Sheila did an outstanding job taking the “scary” out and putting the fun into children’s dentistry. The story has found a permanent place in our office (and our home)!” - Dr. Wells & Elizabeth Hammock, Bay Pediatric & Adolescent Dentistry, 2013
