What's the story?

What parent isn't sick and tired of hearing the phrase "H1N1" at every turn? Just imagine how your kids feel about constant reminders at home and school to "Wash your hands!" Well, now you can just push play on the CD player and let singer, songwriter, and storyteller extraordinaire Bill Harley do the reminding this time. In his latest single, WASH YOUR HANDS, Harley works his usual stroke of story-singing genius to help kids fight the bug this flu season and all year-round.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

It seems so simple, doesn't it? Just wash your hands and fight the flu? But when it comes to snotty, oblivious, nose-picking preschoolers and grade-schoolers, that simple instruction can often get overlooked while in the classroom or after getting off the bus. "Wash Your Hands" is an easy solution to get your kiddos at least thinking about washing up and making bubbles. Harley uses a catchy, reggae tune with funny lyrics like "your hands covered with goo" and "your sneeze explodes," that will have kids singing the little ditty all the way to the bathroom sink. The single includes a short and longer version, with step-by-step guides to washing your hands and singing the ABC song. Now, next time Junior starts to take a bite of his PB&J, he just might stop and think, "Did I wash?" A little peace of mind for you during the germy time of year.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about ways to avoid getting sick. What are some other good tips for staying healthy?

  • Washing your hands is a great way to stay healthy during the flu season. But what about year-round? Does what we eat affect our health? Do you think commercials encourage us to eat healthy or unhealthy foods? Do you think kids today have healthy or unhealthy eating habits? Why?
