Best read aloud for teaching about handwashing?
I am wondering if anyone knows of a good read-aloud to teach first graders about handwashing/germs?

I'm looking for one where it doesn't portray germs as giant monsters that you can see (The one I already read did that) because it perpetuates the myth that if you can't see the germs on your hand, they must not be there. I'm looking for something that takes a more scientific approach, yet is still first grade friendly!

“Those mean, nasty, downright disgusting but invisible germs“

It’s still on amazon for about $13

Adorable pictures of germs. The headache germ looks like a hammer!

My kids always drew their own while they took turns with handwashing practice.
