This book masterfully combines the languages of Igbo and English. Through its engaging content, I was able to learn the right way to wash my hands, and valuable Igbo words such as 'kedu,' 'bianu,' and 'Nne.'

Teaching the younger ones how to wash their hands, is very important and using the mother language makes it more essential and helps the learners build confidence in the use of the mother language. It will be a great achievement if it is duplicated in more language's within Nigeria.

I appreciate the bilingual nature of this book, offering both Igbo and English languages. It's worth noting that there are also versions available in Yoruba and Hausa, which is beneficial for children's language acquisition and cognitive development.

This book teaches children the importance of washing their hands. Handwashing is a simple yet powerful practice that significantly contributes to maintaining good health and preventing the spread of illness in children. I liked the fact that it is written in two languages - Igbo and English.

The book is an educational and informative material for children. It teaches personal hygiene on washing hands. It states when and how to wash our hands and why it is necessary to wash our hands. Plus, it's a wonderful initiative to have it read in our major local dialects, I'd say it was fun learning a few Igbo words as I read, especially "M na-akwo aka m" (I wash my hands).
