In the new post Covid-19 pandemic world, responsible parenting will include a greater emphasis on matters of hygiene. Professor Robert Carlisle of Oxford University and part of the UK Covid-19 vaccine team, has authored this book to help parents remind their child of the importance of regular hand washing and other behaviours that can minimise the spreading of germs.
“ Telling children there is a whole other miniature world of nasty germs that can make them ill, has to be done in a way that informs and helps them, rather than adding to their anxiety.
