I Know How We Fight Germs by Kate Rowan


I Know How We Fight Germs by Kate Rowan

Each Sam's Science book explores an aspect of science through a conversation between young Sam and his mum. In this book, Sam's cold prompts a discussion about germs.


One of the 'Sam's Science

-friendly, from the large print to the simple language. The illustrations are a mixture of drawings and diagrams made easy to understand. All are beautifully drawn and brightly coloured, by the highly capable hand of Katharine McEwan. The book takes the form of a textbook especially for young children, including a short index at the back. It does lack a glossary to explain the more complex terms, but Sam's mother does a good job of this in the main body of the text. A great way to introduce children to the subject of human biology.
