Germs (Ross Collins)

Recommended, Repeatable

This is a super-clever picture book about a germ (Pox, 12087-2) that is appropriate probably for advanced 4+ year olds/students who enjoy sciences. Parents will get a kick out of the idea of the germ as a hero, though the language is a bit adult in the puns department (the bubonic bus for example). The tough part is that the drawings make it seem appropriate for the toddler age group, but your toddler isn’t going to get much out of this book (other than cute pictures). I still would recommend it, because it’s clever and worth the read… it’s just hard to know (between the language and the storyline) what age it’s really meant for.
