Cline-Ransome, Lesa Germs. PICTURE BOOK. Christy Ottaviano Books (Henry Holt), 2017. $17.99. Content: G.
This picture book features a history of ‘germs’ from a germs point of view. They tell us how they have always been with us, their real names, the first humans to discover them, how they got such a bad reputation, and some of the wonderful things they do. Features large, bright and engaging illustrations.
I think this will be a very handy book for teachers, especially when they talk about washing hands, and especially during cold and flu season. It simple and easy to read and understand. The cover is appealing enough that students will want to read this book on their own.
