Introduces readers to chicken pox and its symptoms, treatments, and prevention.
School Library JournalGr 1-3-These introductions to common childhood ailments are general and straightforward. Two or three simple sentences in large font appear on each page and address the causes, symptoms, appearances, and treatments. Sentences read along the lines of "Blisters are itchy" or "Kids should see a doctor for pinkeye." Although the photo of pus in the volume on pinkeye is riveting, for the most part the illustrations are decorative (children holding their stomachs or pretending to sneeze). Serviceable additions for libraries in need of extremely basic information on any of these conditions.-Christine A.
