The Very Stuffy Nose

Kelley Richardson

The Very Stuffy Nose is a 34-page, 11″ x 8.5″, paperback book telling the story of a boy who starts breathing through his mouth after getting a cold. His habitual mouth breathing leads to long term nasal congestion which also affects his ability to smell. Join Finn on this journey as he discovers how to unstuff his stuffy nose and find new favorite scents along the way. See if you can find the lizard, baseball, and cat every time you turn the page.
This story educates on the consequences of mouth breathing and the benefits of breathing through the nose. In addition to being a decongestion suggestion, the author, Kelley Richardson, details her own experience as a parent struggling to help her young son with chronic congestion, inflammation, poor sleep and restlessness. Kelley hopes to spark awareness of how simple changes in breathing and sleep can result in positive improvements in behavior, growth and development.
