Hand Washing Information for Kids

Special thanks to a Librarian at Pine Wood Elememtary School for suggesting we add a section for Kids. She wrote us after a suggestion from a student teacher. Here is what she had to say:

"My name is <name withheld> and I am a Librarian at Pinewood Elementary School. Being surrounded by children all day I am sure you can imagine how many gems circulate our school. This past month we have had many teachers and students go home with flu like symptoms. I have been working with our student teachers in putting together information to send home with our kids about ways to stay healthy during flu season. This morning I came across your site and wanted to thank you for making your page. It has some good links and tips we are going to include in our info packet. One of our student teachers found some information that you might be able to pass along on your website."
