Why Do You Wash Your Hands?
Did you know that every year more than 60,000 children under the age of 5 die of diarrhoea? (WaterAid 2018). Did you also know that many of these deaths are preventable with proper hand washing practices? This book deploys a fun and pictorial style to help children and their parents understand the importance of regular hand washing whilst learning the different occasions before or after which they should wash their hands.
Why Do You Wash Your Hands? is Nigeria's first children’s books to be published simultaneously in 4 different indigenous languages – English, Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa.
Thank you to @bunmiaboderintalabi and @cleverclogsbooks for the amazing book #whydoyouwashyourhands. Great illustration, easy to read and super educative. It teaches children why, when and how to wash their hands in a fun way that they won't forget. My nieces now shade everyone when they do not wash their hands.Molade Adeniyi
The fact that it comes in local languages means that I get to also teach my daughter some Yoruba while at it 😊.
Super well done!

Bunmi's book on hand washing should be on every school bookshelf and possibly in every child's book collection. It's very relevant at this time.Sylvia Nwakwue

I like the fact that it is a fantastic print and I particularly like the topic. It addresses one of the basic issues of healthy living - washing of hands especially in the face of the rampaging COVID-19.Ademola Osinubi

I love how such relevant instruction is presented in a simple, relatable, easy to understand yet attractive way for children of all ages. The children at Kids' Court School thoroughly enjoyed listening, reading along and responding to the cues in the story. "Why do you wash your hands?" by Olubumni Aboderin-Talabi is a classic that will remain a valuable part of any child's library through the ages.Dr. Abimbola Ogundere
