Wash Your Hands
From Plank Road Publishingby David Ellsworth and Anne Ellsworth
Now here's a worthy subject for kids of all ages. We have written it to work with your youngest singers, since they should learn this as early as possible in life. Considering what we now know about the transmission of sickness and disease through touch, it's important to teach kids to wash their hands often with water and soap.
The melody of the song is simple and is always sung in unison. The spoken part is also unison and very repetitious, so it should be easy to learn and remember. The recording features some happy sound effects, like water running, as well as "scrubby" sounds here and there. (from Music K-8, Vol. 12, No. 3)
