PreS-Each page gives a tip in English and in Spanish on how to deal with germs-for instance, what to do when a child has a cough, has a runny nose, uses the bathroom, etc. The page that shows children washing their hands also features musical notes along with the text to suggest the singing of a hand-washing song. The colorful spreads are appealing and support the information in the text. The figures and furniture are outlined with bold black ink and filled in with bright colors. The characters are of different ethnicities and are easy for children to relate to. A "Tips for Parents and Caregivers" is appended. A valuable resource for public, school, and home libraries.-Cindy Moreno, San Antonio Public Library, TX (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
