Jean is the Stinky Fork in the silverware family, and the other silver want her to take a bath or shower!

“The other silverware used to be pretty nice to me, and the people used to use me a lot. Now, I’m practically out of a job because I never get used by the people, and the other silverware won’t have much to do with me either.”

Poor Jean the Fork… just can’t figure out why things have changed for her. Why are the people not using her at meals? And why do the other forks, knives and spoons avoid her? When she asks the wise old can opener about it, he replies:

“Well, I hate to break it to you, my friend, Fork, but it appears you smell like last week’s pork!”

In the fifth book in her award-winning Building Relationships series, author Julia Cook offers a hilarious approach to a very personal issue – good hygiene! Using silverware as the stars, Julia helps explain the importance of regular bathing, too brushing, and other hygiene-related issues. Students, parents and educators will laugh and learn along with Fork as she discovers the importance of good personal hygiene and its impact on your relationships with others!

Tips are included in the storybook for parents and educators to help encourage kids to keep clean.
