Robbie and the sugar bug family were the best of friends! It was always sprinkle donuts for breakfast, lollipops for lunch, and gummies for dinner. But then things started to go rotten… Get ready for the bite-size story of Robbie and the Sugar Bug family. Written by Libertyville Dentist, Dr. Sam Weisz, for the tiniest of patients, to get them ready to brush their pearly whites and take a seat in the dentist chair. With vibrant illustrations, this sweet storybook serves up a positive message for brushing, flossing, and eating healthy foods. Perfect for shared reading with your two-minute brusher in and out of the classroom!


"After reading [Sugar Bugs], my patients are choosing their foods more wisely, taking brushing more seriously, and even grasping the concept of spitting so as to 'spit out the sugar bugs.'."  —Dr. Kristin Elliot D.D.S, Growing Smiles
