I bought this book because we have a couple of nail biters in this house and quite frankly, that makes me sick! Literally! This book goes into great detail on what is lurking under your fingernails, on your school desk, etc., and blows them up to indicate what actually makes us sick. This is one of those "gross out" books that boys LOVE! It is science at its best too - very fascinating and informative book. Did the job too - no more nail biting and no more strep throat! Highly, highly recommend!

My nine year old loved this book! So did the adults in the home as well. Wonderful descriptions and detailed, vivid pictures. Scared him too!! Now washing is a necessity! It should be recommended reading for all 9 year olds AND their parents! One of the best of the DK readers(advisory: Not for the squeamish!)

Our two young boys needed a reminder to wash their hands after using the bathroom, after sneezing and after picking up "things" in the backyard.

Lo and behold, we found this little gem from DK readers.

Now, our boys understand about germs and use soap and hand sanitizer religiously. We pull the book out periodically to remind them of why good hygiene is so important. The fantastic pictures really help young minds grasp this concept.

Here's some other DK Readers science books that I recommend:
DK Readers: Slinky, Scaly Snakes (Level 2: Beginning to Read Alone) (Paperback)
DK Readers: Bugs! Bugs! Bugs! (Level 2: Beginning to Read Alone) (Paperback)
DK Readers: Munching, Crunching, Sniffing, and Snooping (Level 2: Beginning to Read Alone) (Paperback)
DK Readers: The Secret Life of Trees (Level 2: Beginning to Read Alone) (Paperback)
DK Readers: Plants Bite Back! (Level 3: Reading Alone) (Paperback)

UPDATE: October 2009

Time again to pull this book out for a refresher about good hygiene. All schools are on the lookout for a swine flu outbreak (H1N1 Virus) and the common flu.

Bought this for my son. He is 6 and interested in all kinds of gross stuff. We got him a microscope to go with this book and he is sold on science. If you have a little science nut in your life, this is a sure fire way to encourage their interest in science. He was amazed at pictures and could read the book mostly by himself. Yes, worth the money. And I'll be buying one for my little nephew soon.

I gave this to my grandson for Christmas (Santa) . He woke up at 1:17AM found it in the living room and took it to bed with him! he has read it a number of times and it is a favorite book for him. Boys are into bugs and this meets his need for something interessting.

Great book with interesting information. I bought it as an accessory to a microscope given as a Christmas present this past year.

Haven't heard from the young great-grandson about this gift. His parents seemed very pleased with it when it was opened.

This book is a boy's dream! It is all about yucky head lice and fleas and bed bugs....etc. It is educational and inspires the kids to want to go searching for these bugs and looking closely at the dogs, cats and your head for bugs. OUr son got a microscope for his birthday and we got this book to inspire him to want to see more than the slides that came with it. He is now on a quest to find fleas, bed bugs, and head lice! Unfortunately I cannot say that I truly hope he is successful!!

Beautiful photos--as always with DK--but interesting info for kids. The page of eyelash mites got my students going!

Very cool book my nephew loved it. Bought it with a microscope he got for Christmas. Its mostly electron microscopy images, so its images of VERY small things, but cool never the less.
