“But the good news is, there’s a simple thing that little germs can’t stand… If you don’t want them to hang around, all you do is….WASH YOUR HANDS!”
Doris the Doctorpus explains to the animals at school that there are some very very small things called GERMS that can be sent packing with soap and water…even though there’s MILLIONS of them! Doris has even got her own hand-washing song. Matt Carr has come up trumps with this funny and helpful picture book. We loved the tropical fruit colour palette he has chosen to compliment his engaging animal characters. Doris is particularly appealing – and any doctor will tell you that having eight arms would come in handy, particularly at the moment – although washing all eight limbs makes her late for her lunch.
While Coronavirus isn’t mentioned, this book is very useful to reinforce the importance of hand washing to minimise the spread of the virus.
