A fantastic way to introduce children to the world of germs and infectious diseases, this book is particularly relevant for children who want to know more about the Ebola outbreak and the role of the doctors they see on the news.
Written from the perspective of a 'disease detective' who surveys the scene of infectious disease outbreak, students will learn how WHO and others use interviews, fingerprints, DNA analysis, and interviews with sick people to figure out why happened at the scene of an outbreak.
Students will learn about microbes, cultures, viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, common diseases (such as influenza, ebola, and others), vaccines, the importance of cleanliness, and the many different people who work together to improve public health in the face of disease outbreaks through informal, easy-to-read chapters and cute illustrations of various germs.
60 pages, hardcover. Ages 8-12.
Please Note: this book references evolution.
