I used this book with older students who didn't know much about science. I used it when standing in for a teacher in home economics. I wanted them to know why we are better off being clean and keeping our surroundings clean.

Very thorough for an inquiring young child, but written in a clear, easy to understand manner.

Sam's Science is a terrific series. It gives just the right amount of information without getting so technical that it loses children. The simple illustrations wonderfully compliment the fun, yet informative text.

My only big complaint is when the important discussion of scabs comes up. Sam's Mom excellently explains what scabs are, their role in healing wounds and keeping bacteria out, and reminds why you shouldn't pick them. To which Sam replies, "But I LIKE picking at scabs". After a glib statement like that, you fully expect to see Mom make a final comment about NOT picking scabs. Unfortunately, you turn the page, only to find the story move on to talking about how not all bacteria are bad.

This is confusing and unfortunate, as the ages this book is geared toward are the ages at which most children pick their scabs until they bleed over and over.

My own daughter has scars as the result of picking her scabs. I feel that this book would have been 5 stars, were it not for missing a perfect opportunity to really hit home about an inappropriate and potentially harmful habit many children have.
