“If You Give an Ox an Oxy”
Remember the mouse who wanted a cookie – and a glass of milk to go with it? Or the moose who wanted a muffin? In If You Give an Ox an Oxy, adolescents meet an ox who takes a prescription medication called an opioid. They follow him as he goes from taking a few opioids, to overusing them, and finally becoming addicted, learning about treatment for addiction and how dangerous taking illegal opioid drugs can be. Inspired by the mouse who was clearly addicted to cookies, Ox’s story demonstrates how opioid use often leads to a cycle of addiction and recovery. Although Ox’s story is told in a childlike way, opioid use is a very serious and complex topic. Written by national expert on the opioid epidemic Dr. Laura E. Happe, she transforms the beloved childhood picture book into an educational resource that teens are sure to remember to help them understand the risks of opioid use – and why it’s best not to start in the first place.
