In this season of germs I think it is very important to teach children what exactly germs are, how they spread, and how to avoid spreading them. I've already gotten the stomach flu once this year, so the sooner I could read this book and teach them what germs are, the better! Read full review

This informational board book is fantastic for little ones with germ related issues. It explains the importance of washing hands to flush the germs away, coughing in your elbows to prevent the spread of germs and has an overarching message of the importance of keeping your germs to yourself!
