Book Review


George gets sick with a cold, but that doesn’t stop him from being curious—he’s determined to find out all about germs and sickness! When he dozes off in bed, he dreams that he’s exploring inside his own body and comes across the germ culprits, promptly kicking them out of his body with a sneeze. Though George recovers, the man with the yellow hat also becomes sick, and this time George tracks the same germs in him and they escape when the man wipes his nose with his hand. Instead of making their way to yet another person, these germs are soon gone for good when everyone decides to wash their hands (or paws).
