Children's LiteratureI remember—as a kid—hearing about Pinkeye, but I never really knew much about it. This title provides a clear and simple explanation of this common childhood disease. It also cautions kids that Pinkeye is contagious and urges good hygiene. The "yuck factor" is high with a picture of an eye filled with pus and a greatly-magnified view of a white blood cell. This entry in the "Rookie Read-About Health" series will not only inform kids and give reassurance that the disease can be fairly quickly cleared up, but may also alert parents and other caregivers to the signs of pinkeye, and what steps to take. There is a picture glossary entitled "Words You Know," an index, and a brief blurb about the author. 2003, Children's Press/Scholastic, Ages 4 to 7.
