Lovely book for kids
Fun book! Easy to follow, but treats kids with respect and conveys a message without overly simplifying the importance of hygiene and protecting yourself from COVID. Definitely recommend for young kids, especially for the music and narration.
Love the music and the message!
My kiddo wanted to hear this book over and over! The dog is especially adorable and the message is much needed these days. I love that she wanted to hear Ravel’s “La Valse” over and over again, too! Our hearts and ears are happy ;-).
This is a wonderful book to my kid to overcome the fear and face the world bravely
