20 Books About Health and Hygiene for Preschoolers


It's flu season, and our state seems to be particularly hard hit with sickness. Having kids that feel less-than-stellar or slightly-under-the-weather is a completely different experience from nursing children suffering from the flu, infections, or other serious illnesses, as all you worn-out parents will agree.

So, we've prepared a list of 20 books that will help you start a conversation with your young child about washing their hands, brushing their teeth, taking a bath, and taking care not to share germs with their friends:

  1. Bath Time by Eileen Spinelli
  2. A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip Christian Stead
  3. Ella Kazoo Will Not Brush Her Hair by Lee Fox
  4. Time for a Bath by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page
  5. Brushing Teeth by Mari Schuh
  6. My Cold Went on Vacation by Molly Rausch
  7. The Pigeon Needs a Bath by Mo Willems
  8. Froggy Goes to the Doctor by Jonathan London
  9. On the Way to the Bath by Sarah Maizes
  10. Wash Your Hands! by Margaret McNamara
  11. Katie Woo Has the Flu by Fran Manushkin
  12. President Taft Is Stuck in the Bath by Mac Barnett
  13. Curious George Discovers Germs by Erica Zappy
  14. Llama Llama Home with Mama by Anna Dewdney
  15. The Whale in the Bathtub by Kylie Westaway
  16. How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? by Jane Yolen
  17. Mo’s Mustache by Ben Clanton
  18. A Visit to Dr. Duck by Rosemary Wells
  19. Piggy Pie Po by Audrey Wood
