How do you make young children understand the importance of bathing and brushing? In this inegenious tale, young readers are sure to get the message that good hygiene will improve their health and their relationships!
The story centers around a fork named Jean who hates taking baths in the sink and detests showering in the dishwasher. Jean the Fork just can’t figure out why people are not using her as frequently, or why the other forks, knives and spoons avoid her. When she asks the wise old can opener about it, he replies,
“Well, I hate to break it to you my friend Fork, but it appears you smell like last week’s pork!”
This is part of the award-winning Building Relationships series from Boys Town Press.

Hygiene is a very sensitive topic for kids and adults to deal with and this book handles it in a fun and easy way. Every school nurse, counselor, teacher, parent and child needs this book. A GREAT tool for a difficult topic!”
