Share this book with children to help them, in a safe and calm way, understand how germs work. In addition to straightforward, helpful information told in a warm and approachable way, the book contains a chart of rules for good health that reinforces healthful living. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 5 to 7 who are ready to read independently. It’s a fun way to keep your child engaged and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Germs are all around us, but they're too small to see. Many germs are harmless, but two kinds, viruses and bacteria, can make you sick. How? Read and find out! This Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out picture book is all about germs, how they can make you sick, and how your body works to fight them off. 

This book features rich vocabulary and simple diagrams to explain why you feel poorly when you're sick and how your body keeps you healthy by producing antibodies. Both text and artwork were vetted for accuracy by Dr. Melanie Marin. An excellent resource in this time of COVID-19.

This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book, which means the book explores more challenging concepts perfect for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
