Kirkus Reviews

Scrubba Dub, Carlos, . . . [teaches] children the importance of good hand-washing. When Carlos fails to clean his dirty hands, Miss Cathy leads a discussion on why hand-washing is so important and shows the children the proper hand-washing technique, broken down into flowchart steps on the pages. Unfortunately, rather than use the old standard of "Happy Birthday," Murphy has children "singing" "One scrubba dub, two scrubba dub..." all the way up to 10. Still, by the end of the book, young readers will be familiar with both the whys and the hows of hand-washing. . . .
