Young Sam has caught a cold and he and his mother talk about germs, viruses and bacteria. They also talk about different facts such as a sneeze travels up to the length of three elephants long. A fun, informative and educational book that will help young children learn how to stay healthy.

Who would benefit from reading this book?

I think that young children who are just old enough to learn how we get sick and what makes us sick would enjoy this book. it is made for young children, but it still has enough information in it and it's drawings that it's still informative and useful to use in maybe a classroom setting.

What problems do you see arising from reading this book?

I do not currently see any problems arising from reading this book.

What was your reaction?

I thought this book was super cute. As I've mentioned before the book has wonderfully unique illustrations that help get the facts and information across to the younger audiences.
