Follow a sniffly girl on a hands-on trip to the zoo, and you’ll find one miserable menagerie — and a comical ode to the virtue of tissues.

All of the animals down at the zoo
Are snuffling and snorting and sneezing ACHOO.

Why are the hyenas crying boo-hoo? And what gave the rhino a sickly green hue? It starts when Felicity Floo wipes her red, runny nose and transfers the goo. . . . Kids will be happily grossed out to follow the icky trail as she pets one hapless, bleary-eyed creature after another. With whimsical, stylized illustrations showing Felicity’s handprints on every spread, this cautionary tale will have readers roaring out loud—and racing off to wash their hands!

Baker & Taylor
During her visit to the zoo, Felicity Floo wipes her red, runny nose and transfers the goo to the animals, in a cautionary tale that will have little ones racing off to wash their hands.

Felicity Floo forgot to wash her hands and now all the animals at the zoo at sick! Good rhyimng book suitable for ages 3-5

An example of how important hygiene is, because without it sickness spreads. The artist really managed to make everyone look particularly sickly to illustrate this point. The entire book has the same sound rhymed too, which is quite impressive.

Such a great book, not only for the lesson it teaches, but I absolutely love the illustrations as well as the reading cadence of the book. We check it out again and again.

A great book for sick kids everywhere! Just the right balance of humour and ickiness and works as a fun read-aloud!
