I actually found this book in an old pile that used to be my partner’s from when she was a little girl. Now I have read it to my own 4 yo son countless times, and he loves it. He asks questions about viruses and microorganisms that he has come up with from reading the book, and how the vaccine might work. Couldn’t be happier as a dad! – From Sam Askin’s 10 Great Science Books and Stuff by Sciengage
