Now Wash Your Hands!

Publisher: Scholastic

One day at school, Doris Doctorpus comes for a visit and tells the children all about germs: for instance, how there are so many of them that hundreds of millions of them would fit on a spoon - AND, how it’s very important that we wash our hands to avoid those little germs making us poorly.

Soon, Doris has helped everyone remember to wash their hands after going to the toilet, being outside and before they eat – and she even has a handy song you can learn while you’re washing your hands, too. Fantastic!

Matt Carr’s sweet picture book is a useful one for little ones and would be perfect at school or at home as a fun reminder to wash our hands and keep nasty germs away.
