Germs VS. Soap is the perfect educational tool for getting dirty hands clean (for children and adults alike)! This FUN and easy to read story gives a fresh spin on washing hands by sharing the perspective of germs (which I had no idea could have such hilarious personalities). The graphics are colorful and clever and the vocab is very memorable so it will help kids remember why it's important to wash hands, use soap and get rid of all those germ loving energy cupcakes. This will be a MUST read in my classroom (and maybe even at the start of play dates at home too). Bottom line, if you need a book to teach your kids the important life skill of hand washing, THIS IS IT.
Before this book, my 4-year-old would say, "Do I HAVE to wash my hands this time?" After this book, my 4-year-old says, "Can I wash my hands? I need soap to wash the germs away!" As a parent of 3 young kids, I know the challenges of getting kids to wash their hands - FOR REAL. After I got this book, they laughed their way through the goofy story and colorful illustrations, which caused the lesson to stick in their brains. Now hand washing isn't a chore; it's a continuous conversation about this book. I couldn't ask for more out of a book!
Love love love this book! I have three boys with ages ranging from 2-8 and they were all very engaged from the first page. My oldest started washing his hands at the kitchen sink while I was still reading! Plus we all think it’s super funny! Kids learn so well while having fun and laughing, so this book is certainly a win!
A darling and delightful approach to a subject that could not be more timely. Wash your hands already! This little book offers a compelling, relevant “why” for kids to wash *with soap* beyond the “because I said so” or “just do it” directives. And I love that it also illustrates “how.” The writing is playfully serious and makes me want to turn the page (and won’t make me rip my hair out when we read it again...and again). The illustrations are bright, clear, and fun, easily understandable to a broad range of ages. I’m a Creative Director, Designer, Illustrator, and lead a K-5th after school arts program. This book hits on all cylinders. My kids are going to love this required reading!
Love this sweet book! I’m a kid at heart and laughed out loud at many of the cute germ “comments” throughout the adorable illustrations. I also learned new techniques about hand washing. We need that now more than ever! Such a fun way to teach kids of all ages the importance of good hygiene.
