Bye-Bye Germs: Be a Handwashing Superhero! introduces Jess and her brother Joe who were playing with their toys when Jess felt a tickle in her throat.

The little tickle turned into a bigger tickle…
…and the bigger tickle turned into a giant cough and sneeze until Jess and Joe are both in bed poorly!

How can they stop the germs from spreading?

Join them on their journey as they learn that becoming a handwashing superhero will keep the naughty germs at bay!

In the wake of COVID-19, we are all aware of the importance of hand hygiene.

Medina Publishing has partnered with De Montfort University to publish a child-friendly book that includes fact boxes to explain the importance of hand-washing to help children, parents and carers understand the science behind the story.
