    This video was a perfect review of hygiene without lecturing. Our Middle School special needs students found it enjoyable and certainly opened their eyes as to the "why" we worry about hygiene. The worksheets were perfect!

    As a school nurse in an elementary school, I have shown this video several times with students from 1st through 5th grade. The students have given great feedback. A fun video with info that is very easy for the children to retain.

    Wonderful video for helping students understand the importance of personal hygiene! It shows them how germs are spread, what causes body odor and is very kid friendly! I and the students changed the way we do things after watching this video - and I thought I had hand washing down - not so after washing this!
