PreS-Gr 2-The Little Princess is constantly being reminded to wash her hands-after playing outside, frolicking with the dog, using the potty, and sneezing. After questioning why, she is told that germs and nasties can get in her food and make her sick. She accepts the reasoning graciously and washes her hands before having cake. Ross uses lighthearted text and funny, expressive cartoons to emphasize the importance of good hygiene. Without being didactic, he shows the benefits of clean hands-and the downside of the opposite. Colorful germs and nasties enhance the pages without scaring young children. Useful and entertaining.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX
