Teegan and the Teeny Tiny TICK
"As new cases of tick-borne disease such as Lyme disease continue to rise in Canada and around the world, this timely new resource for parents, teachers and children’s leaders provides a well-illustrated, relatable story which is both fun to read and teaches an important lesson! Deb Crunican creatively reinforces the importance of tick-awareness and adding proactive tick-checks to a child’s everyday routine. Tick bite prevention is key – whether at home, daycare, playground, school, or camp. Every pre-school, middle-school classroom and household with young children needs this book!"
Sue Faber, RN, BScN, President LymeHope
"Deb Crunican’s colourful and upbeat children’s book is an important contribution to the serious topic of the prevention of tick-borne diseases. By reaching a younger population directly, as well as their parents and teachers with its key educational pointers, it is an excellent resource. Checking for ticks and preventing tick bites can become a necessary part of daily self-care. The addition of tick-bite related resources for adults is an appreciated inclusion in this book as well. Well done!"
Lisa Dennys, B.Sc.(OT), D.C.M., D. Ac., author of Unveiling Lyme Disease: Is This What’s Behind Your Chronic Illness?
"In a light-hearted manner, Teegan and the Teeny Tiny Tick teaches kids an important lesson about ticks. Ticks conduct host-seeking activities whenever the temperatures are above zero, and there is no snow cover. The blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis, harbours and transmits at least six different tick-borne zoonotic pathogens that cause human diseases. Kudos to Deb Crunican."
John D. Scott, Senior Research Scientist (Acarology)

From the sweetest little main character in yellow boots to the beautiful illustrations of apple orchards, you just can’t help but feel wonderful reading this to your little ones. It’s an all inclusive, feel good read that should be on every little ones book shelf."
