Children's LiteratureAnyone who has seen Bill Nye the Science Guy on television will not be disappointed in this book. It is the same joyful voice in the narrative, the same wacky sense of humor, and the same action-packed, non-stop information deluge presented in book form. Like the television program, each chapter has amazing facts, science experiments, helpful diagrams, clear explanations for why things work, and easily understood definitions. The book discusses bacteria, viruses, how germs get around, how our bodies fight germs, the immune system, the history of germs, how germs were discovered, what is in vaccinations, antibiotics, HIV and AIDS, keeping safe from germs and some good things about germs. Like his television program, Bill Nye tackles big concepts and makes them fun and understandable for kids. The page layout and illustrations are exciting but not distracting. This book is part of Hyperion's "Bill Nye the Science Guy" series, which also includes Bill Nye the Science Guy's Big Blue Ocean, Bill Nye the Science Guy's Great Big Dinosaur Dig, and Bill Nye the Science Guy's Consider the Following. 2005, Hyperion Books for Children, Ages 7 to 10.
