Ouch! by Joe Rhatigan –ADVISABLE

Rhatigan, Joe Ouch! 80 pgs. Imagine Publishing, 2013. $12.75.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
This large book is a fun and informative look at common childhood ailments. The reader finds out what is happening in the body, what to do, when to see the doctor, and the healing process. Its covers topics from Blisters, to Burns, to stings, to the flu. Includes many illustrations and photographs.

This is a really fun book and students will really enjoy reading it. The best thing the author did was choosing ailments that all students will have heard of and can relate to.  The worst thing was that the content can be a bit advanced, its at about a 5th  grade + reading level, though I know younger students will be interested. The illustrations and photographs really add to the book, it’s incredibly bright and colorful!
