Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Translated from Japanese, this book explains everything you ever wanted to know about scabs in a format that will facilitate kid's understanding. Remember when your mother used to tell you "Don't pick that scab". Well, this book gives quite a lengthy explanation of how and why scabs form and the continued process of healing. Illustrated with cartoon drawings, it's perfect for kids who obsess about scabs.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2--Most children are curious about scabs, for many of them have a scab somewhere on their bodies for most of their childhood. This Japanese import explores that fascination and explains how and why scabs form. Children with orange skin discuss picking them, eating them ("YUCK!"), and wonder what they are made of. "Is it hardened blood?" Could it be the "poop of a sore?" There is no indication which words are spoken by what character. The crudely drawn art and the words are helter-skelter on the pages, giving a messy appearance. However, even though the pictures are unattractive, the diagrams are well labeled and easy to understand and the clear, conversational text explains the process very well.--Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
