School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3-5-In both volumes, the symptoms, diagnosis, causes, and treatments of these complex diseases are explained. In the first book, having an attack of asthma is compared to trying to breathe through a straw, which helps readers understand the seriousness of the disease. In the second book, the authors explain the complexities of glucagon, insulin, and glucose, and the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Both titles are well organized. The full-color cartoons and photos range from decorative to informative, but complement the texts.-Christine A.
