Hygiene… You Stink!


Teach kids in grades K-6 to understand the need for personal hygiene without lecturing or scolding. This amusing story centers around a fork named Jean who hates taking baths in the sink, detests showering in the dishwasher, and has plenty of excuses for not keeping clean. When she notices that other silverware no longer wants to hang out with her, the can opener explains the importance of bathing and tooth brushing. Then her social relationships improve for the better. Hygiene You Stink! is part of the Building Relationships series which supports social emotional learning. This is one more resource from Julia Cook for helping kids get the social skills they need to get along with adults and peers. Tips for Clean Kids help parents, teachers or counselors further address this personal issue with sensitivity.
