Sesame Street: Happy, Healthy Monsters

Illustrated by Ernie Kwiat

Learning to wash hands and practice healthy habits are fun when Elmo and his friends are the teachers.

Wash your hands throughout the day.
This will keep the germs away.
Use warm water—not too hot.
Wet your hands, don’t miss a spot!
 
Now, more than ever, it's important to practice good hygiene and habits to stay healthy. Elmo and his friends teach kids proper hand-washing and other healthy habits in this fun interactive book. Kids can help Elmo wet his hands by pulling a tab, make suds by turning a wheel, and then tuck him into bed for a good night's sleep. A catchy hand-washing song is included to encourage kids to scrub for the recommended 20 seconds. This fun follow-up to Let’s Go Potty, Elmo! will have kids singing their way to clean hands and a healthy body!
