You have got to show this to your kids!

Editor / March 30 2020

Childrens entertainers The Wiggles are a family favourite throughout the world. Their songs are fun, catchy and often educational.

Well this new song is no different, ‘Social Distancing’ is the latest hit from Anthony, Simon, Emma and Lachy.

The song is a social story for children to help them understand why they can’t visit their friends, family and why it is so important to wash your hands.

Earlier this year The Wiggles wrote 8 limited edition free books just for children. The books were given out free to children at Big W stores.

The 8-part series “Here to Help” books share all the important things toddlers need to know as they grow, covering everything from safety at home, in the water, in the car; to understanding feelings and being thoughtful; as well as the importance of eating a healthy diet, washing your hands and having fun.

Speaking about the upcoming series, Anthony Field (the Blue Wiggle) says, “Our “Here to Help” series is all about showing children important life lessons in an engaging way. When other family members become involved or encourage the reading experience it can lead to a very positive, worthwhile, bonding moment. We’re proud to partner with BIG W on this program, providing children with access to books and supporting Aussie families.

Meredith Drake, BIG W’s Category Manager for Books, says providing access to books is at the core of the program, “We want all children and parents to know the joy of reading together and reap the benefits of this precious time with one another. Every day is a big day when you’re a busy parent, so BIG W is helping, through our partnership with The Wiggles, to provide access to books that assist with children’s development and provide priceless bonding moments.”

Michelle Connolly has worked as a photo director, social media manager and photo editor at some of Australia's biggest media companies, including New Idea. She is now editor of Practical Parenting and loving mum-of-two.
