Muddy Hands, Sudsy Hands
by Christine Prill, John Konecny (Illustrations)
3 out of 5 stars
A little boy wonders, What is the big deal about washing your hands all the time? Then he realizes the mud and dirt and germs that are on his hands, and decides to wash his hands thoroughly before eating a meal.
The simple illustrations are cute, and I liked the funny expressions on the little boy’s face when he realizes just how dirty his hands really are. I’m not a big fan of the computer-generated art style, but it is well done and colorful.
This picture book is told in rhyming text. The rhymes are mostly good, and didn’t annoy me too badly. I am very picky about rhyming children’s books, but this one was fairly good. At one point, “warm” and “foam” are supposed to rhyme, but that was the worst one I saw.
This book would be great for teaching little children to wash their hands properly! And little kids don’t care about things like art style and rhymes, so I’m sure they would love it.
