Zombiegerms smell of poop and their skin is toxic and green. They will make sure the whole world is infected if people are not protected and try to get close to them. They leave a trail of slime and live in any disgusting goo. Zombiegerm by Ben Major, Chris Sprenger, and Chris Woffenden introduces young readers to two different brothers - Seb and Pands. While Seb enjoyed making insect-safe zones with sticks and stones, Pands tried to find the perfect slugs to use as earplugs. Pands was always lazy about washing his hands and he believed washing the dirt off his skin was a bad thing. Seb knew that germs were nasty and cruel, and so he wore his antibacterial cape when he went to Pands’ room. There were a lot of germs in the room and Seb was sure his brother would fall ill. Would Seb be able to save his brother and the earth from the zombiegerms?
The author tackles the relevant topic of washing one's hands in a funny and entertaining way which will bring smiles to the faces of young readers. Chris Woffenden’s illustrations make the story funnier and the concept clearer to readers. It is an excellent story for classroom storytelling and read aloud sessions because it will help children realize the importance of washing their hands after using the bathroom, after touching bugs and animals, after picking bogeys, before eating meals, after touching scabs, and after playing in the dirt. Parents and grandparents can use this book for bedtime storytelling because it makes it easier for them to help kids understand why it is important to wash their hands and how to wash germs away.
