My almost 4 year old LOVES this book. That is actually putting it mildly. He is obsessed with germs, and this book is a great introduction to the science of getting sick. If your child is even a little bit interested in germs, I recommend this. I feel like I even learned something!
This is gift book quality.It has the extra pages and says waiting room copy.
With Marilyn Hefner's new full color illustrations, bacteria and viruses have never looked so good! As packed with wit and good humor as with charts and diagrams, this book is still the best explanation of how your body fights germs. An introduction to bacteria and viruses and how each of the two forms attacks cells and makes a person feel sick. The text mixes information with reassurance. . . .
