Pages: 32
Recommended Ages: Read Aloud
Star Rating: ★★★★

In this book Melvin Berger and Marylin Hafner teach children about germs, both viral and bacterial, through an engaging picture book format. Although the information is basic, they still manage to convey lots of information like…

–       The differences between bacteria and viruses,

–       A comparison of how different germs affect the system,

–       How white blood cells go about fighting off disease, and

–       How we catch germs in the first place.

Vaccination-sensitive parents may be wary of a reference on page 31 to making sure you “get the shots you need” in order to stay healthy.

Conclusion. A fun book to teach young children about germs and how to avoid catching them.
