"Marguerite, Wipe Your Feet" is a fun, playful, read-aloud rhyming picture book that shows children how their shoes are a common vehicle for bringing germs into the home and helps them understand the importance of leaving germs outdoors.
Marguerite, the busy bee, indulges in many fun outdoor activities and after a hop, skip, jump, and a rain-stomping day, Marguerite heads home to get something to eat. Plop goes her foot inside the door, but she's immediately stopped. Marguerite learns that bird splats, dog poo, grass, gum, or sticky goo could have hitchhiked to her house on the soles of her shoes. Phew! "Marguerite, Wipe Your Feet" highlights the importance of leaving germs outdoors.
