Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-This newly illustrated edition of Why I Cough, Sneeze, Shiver, Hiccup, and Yawn (Crowell, 1983) offers very basic explanations. In his trademark succinct style, Berger describes how automatic reflexes cause us to try to generate heat (shivering) or to get more oxygen (yawning). He also explains that the nervous system carries messages back and forth from the brain like telephone wires, and that these automatic reflexes help protect us from burning ourselves, from breathing in foreign objects, etc. In this new edition, the author suggests ways to test one's reflexes and describes "startle" reflexes and goose bumps. The writing is simple but effective, and the charming, colorful pen-and-ink and watercolors are much more detailed than the original black-and-white artwork by Holly Keller. Attractive introductory nonfiction.

This book explains about how the human body deals with reflexes. It gets a little technical, but a four or five year old can definately understand the content. I enjoyed reading this book to my children because even I learned a little that I either had not learned or had forgotten.

My 6 yr old son prefers nonfiction books and it can be tough to find them on his level. He loves all the books from this series.

We read this book with our 3 year old and our 7 year old. They both like it. Neither is overly interested in science but this book does a good job relating to children, educating and yet keeping it interesting. They like to shout out "reflex" anytime someone has a reflex (sneeze, yawn, etc.) for a couple of days after reading the book. Well worth it and fun for parents too.

There are a lot of these little books and they all are very well done. Our kids love the idea of getting to know about SCIENCE. The 7th grade teachers I work with even use it with their kids in Science class. Try From Tadpole to Frog (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1).

As I am adding product links I see that Amazon has over 600 titles in this series listed!

Although it was a bit long to hold attention (mostly the other adults in the room) the kids seemed to get a lot out of it, asking questions and remembering when they had been in a similar situation as the person in the throws of the problem. Kids and adults learned from it in our house.
