FC: CLEAN HANDS RULE! Author: Alia Bazzi
1: This book is dedicated to children all around the world; who deserve to live a healthy and safe life.
2: Hands can be big or small, Some are short and others are tall.
3: I can open and shut them, and use them to touch. | With my ten fingers I can do so much,
4: Sometimes I use my hands to eat my food, And sometimes to make sure my crafts are glued.
5: And at times, to make sure my buttons are snap, snap, snapped! | Other times I use my hands to clap, clap, clap,
6: When I go to the beach I play in the sand, And I can even use my hands to stand.
7: I love to pet the animals at the zoo,
8: And with my hands, I cover my mouth when I go "Achoo!"
9: Finger painting is my favorite time to play, | What did YOU do with your hands today?
10: I use my hands for everything I do, | Now my hands are home to many germs-not just a few!
11: Germs are yucky and sticky, | They make my hands dirty and icky!
12: And the nurse will have to give me medicine very quick! | Germs can make me very sick,
13: Germs are tiny creepy crawlers I cannot see, | I have to wash my hands to make them flee!
14: I wash my hands at the sink, I wash them good to get rid of the stink. I turn the faucet on, And put some soap in my palm,
15: As I rub my hands very well, | I look forward to a pleasant smell!
17: I scrub in between my fingers and underneath my nails too, And my wrists, I never forget to do!
18: If I wash too fast the germs will stay, And into my body they will find a way.
19: It always helps to sing my favorite song, I know it will help me to always stay strong. What is YOUR favorite song?
20: After I finish scrubbing and my song is done, I rinse my hands under the warm water I let run. When all the bubbles disappear, I dry my hands with a napkin from near. I use my napkin to turn off the sink, And throw it in the trash as I think...
21: Now I can eat my food with no worries, I have no germs that will send my tummy into flurries!
22: I smell my hands, they smell so clean,
23: Now, Mommy will be so proud of ME!!
