PAXICO, Kan. (KSNT) — A Kansas woman is teaching kids the importance of not spreading germs, thanks to a song that turned into a book.
Joyce Heigert of Paxico wrote a song about stopping germs eight years ago for one of her granddaughters in preschool. In a coincidence, she started thinking of how to get a book published around the same time the pandemic hit.
To Heigert, it was the perfect time to release the book “Stop Those Germs” to educate kids in a fun way that they can use for a lifetime.
“It’s important for everybody to lead a healthy life,” she said. “But if you start teaching your children when they’re young, how to stop the spread of germs and be healthy, then it hopefully will carry over as an adult.”
The “Stop Those Germs” book was also a family project. One of Heigert’s 19 grandkids helped her with the illustrations.
