With the help of Elmo and his friends from Sesame Street, it’s easy and fun for little ones to learn healthy and hygienic habits.

Since 1969, generations of parents have trusted Sesame Street to help their kids learn not only numbers and letters, but to be smarter, stronger, and kinder. Following Let’s Go Potty, Elmo! comes Happy, Healthy Monsters, a bright, colorful, and fun book for preschoolers that shows kids how to take care of themselves. In this timely but gentle title about the importance of cleanliness and staying safe, kids learn why hand-washing is a good thing to do through a catchy song from their favorite little red monster, Elmo. With the help of their friends on Sesame Street and this educational, interactive book, little readers can stay happy and healthy!
