Billy is a boy who does not want to wash his hands. Germs begin to collect on Billy's hands and spread to the rest of his body. We witness the germs plotting and planning to get Billy sick. Soon after, Billy doesn't feel well and takes a trip to see the doctor. After some medicine, chicken soup and a lot of rest, Billy is feeling better. In the end, Billy learns to always wash his hands, and the germs are not very happy.
Children get unique, playful and clear understanding of why it is important to keep your hands clean. The germs are cleverly illustrated and the story is simple yet engaging. Billy and the Angry Germs is a delightfully unique book; thoughtful, helpful and fun to read.
