  • Sue Atkins in conversation with Tina Stubbs from Life’s Little Bugs

Tina Stubbs is the Author and Illustrator behind ‘Life’s Little Bugs’. She set out with a goal to develop a series of picture books that motivate young readers to learn good healthy habits in a positive, fun way.

As a parent, Tina realised there wasn’t anything engaging to help encourage and support parents, teachers and kids when building essential life skills such as brushing teeth, hand washing, making healthy choices, showing respect and kindness and building a growth mindset, to name a few.

Titles in the series include: Tummy Bug, Fitness Bug, Flu Bug, Litter Bug and many more including the book we wrote together ‘Ant I Viral & The Virus’ about the pandemic

I’ll be giving you lots of practical tips to develop independence in your toddler from carrying their own lunch boxes, putting their toys away, putting their shoes by the door, to helping with simple chores like putting clean laundry into drawers.
