Product Description

From the Publisher

Shaun Russell, director of Candy Jar Books - the company behind The Diddy Tree - believes that such a book is long overdue. He said: "Although sucking a dummy has long been seen as a good way to soothe a fussy baby or aid restful sleep, parents are becoming more aware of the dangers of dependence. The Diddy Tree aims to help parents wean their children off these dummies before problems with development set in."

From the Author

Michelle McKenna, the writer of The Diddy Tree, feels passionate that children shouldn't be forced to give up the dummy. She said: "I think dummies have a place and one thing I don't want to do is make parents feel guilty about using them, although since writing the book I have spoken to numerous parents struggling with this problem. Often people find it difficult to take this leap. They are concerned that their children will not sleep or will become distracted easily. I faced these problems too, which is why I have made my book as fun as possible. Encouraging them to ditch their dummies as part of a game makes the process much easier."

This is a well written and illustrated book that my kids loved right from the start. My daughter was soon off her Diddies after a week of reading this story to her. My son also loves the story but he likes to suck his thumb, so I look forward to the next book in the series to sort him out!

i love this book! I bought it for my son expecting to start reading it to him now, in readiness for ditching the dummies in a few months time (too many changes at present - toilet training, moving house etc..) But after first reading he stated "I don't need dummies now" and asked to hang them all on the dummy tree! He LOVES getting presents, so the thought of the dummy fairy leaving him presents in return for his dummies was very exciting for him!! That night he asked for his dummies back, and I gave them back as I don't think he's ready to ditch them yet, but I'll certainly get the book out in a couple of months time again, and I'm pretty sure it will help him ditch the dummies for good!! Great little book (although shame it's the "diddy tree" not "dummy tree|", I substituted the word "diddy" for "dummy" when I read it to my son, and as he can't read yet, he didn't know the difference!!)
