Please note that this is a cautionary tale with a tragic ending. You may want to have a box of tissues nearby.
This video could be an excellent teaching tool if you have small children who don't like to wash their hands. The fear tactic seems to be successful.
Natalie also tells a story of "the little girl who wouldn't brush her teeth," but I have yet to tape it. I asked her if her Mimi told her the story of "the little boy who didn't wash his hands," but she claims that this is an original work.
I think she could be an internet sensation with this repertoire of gentle stories with moral fortitude. I see a line of dolls, books on hygiene, and DVDs in her future.
Maybe she'll buy me a pony with her earnings....
