Sammy the Spider Likes to Bite Book and Reward Pillow Review and Giveaway

Winner Comment #42 - Roshana said...  love the crayon roll......the book/prize would be for my little 2 year old guy....


As most of you know by now, I have two little girls.  Kik is 4 and a half, and Bid is 1 and a half.  Kik has always been very calm and uncofrontational, and super girly.  Bid couldn't be more different!  She's girly to an extent I suppose.  But she's also loud and crazy and stubborn, and pushes her older sister around.  She is definitely the boss and she lets her sister know it!

A few weeks ago she was biting and scratching, and attacking her sister like crazy, and we couldn't figure out how to make her stop.  The same day we were trying to figure this out I was contacted by the talented lady behind B3 Designs and was asked if I would be interested in reviewing a product designed to teach kids to stop biting.  Of course I said yes!

She developed a book and reward pillow that go hand in hand to teach this important concept.


Sammy the Spider Likes to Bite is all about a spider that likes to bite.  He bites the cat, he bites the dog, etc.  until there is no one left to play with.  Then one day a fly lands in his web, and is afraid to play with Sammy in fear that Sammy will bite him.

To reinforce the lesson, the book comes with a reward pillow.  When Sammy is playing nice, the fly stays to play, and might even bring Sammy a treat.  But when Sammy is biting, the fly hides in the pocket and won't come out to play.

To Buy - The book is cute and the reward pillow is adorable.  The book is professionally bound and features black and white pictures.  If you are daring it would be a fun project to color in the pictures with your child so Sammy becomes their familiar friend.

And I love the idea of the reward pillow.  My daughter decided to be nicer the day before the book came in the mail so I didn't get a chance to test it out with her.  But it really is a great idea and I think it could work for some kids.  Even though we didn't use the reward pillow for it's intended purpose, my daughters like to play with it while we are reading the book.  They hide the fly when Sammy is being mean and bring him out to play when Sammy is nice.

The book and reward pillow are available for purchase on the B3 Designs Etsy Page,  or the book can be purchased alone on createspace or Amazon
