Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title opens with a story about a 13-year-old asthmatic and how he has learned to live with the disease. The author succinctly discusses the functions of the respiratory, circulatory, and immune systems, tying this discussion to the process of asthma and its triggers. There is an interesting explanation of how the immune system fights germs, dust, and viruses. Diagrams or interesting microscopic photos are included on each page spread, but might be more instructive with additional labeling. A chapter on the history of asthma is intriguing. "Living with Asthma" provides important information on treatment modalities, how to avoid asthma triggers, rescue medications, and a brief discussion of coping with asthma as a normal part of life. However, understanding body systems is complex to begin with, and is complicated here by the dense text and questionable readability of font type throughout the book. The book contains a glossary of words that are in bold in the text, an index, and "Find Out More" resource lists of organizations, books and websites. This is a useful resource book for learning more about asthma and for school reports. Other titles in the "Health Alert" series include Alzheimer's Disease, Depression, Heart Disease, Lung Cancer and Juvenile Diabetes. 2005, Benchmark Books/Marshall Cavendish, Ages 9 to 12.
—Elaine Wick
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-Without becoming overly technical, the authors explain the causes, physiology, treatments, and complications associated with these conditions. The books are well organized, and each title opens with a case history of someone who suffers from the disease. Depression is especially useful for readers seeking up-to-date information, explaining that there are different types of depression, and that many are caused by a chemical imbalance. The text boxes in each book include lists of famous people who suffer from the diseases, explain what readers can do to help people with the conditions, and offer various warning signs. The photos are colorful and although most are merely decorative, some are startling, including the brain scans of a patient with Alzheimer's and one who suffers from depression. These solid introductions deserve a wide audience.-Christine A. Moesch, City of Tonawanda Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
