What's Eating You?: Parasites -- The Inside Story (Animal Science) Reviews
Kids love this book. I used it in middle school science classes and now my 5 year old is enjoying it. Fun and factual
I happen to be a parasitologist and I love this book. I think that it is remains super FUN while being educational. I have bought it for several children (between the ages of 5 and 12) of friends of mine as well as nieces and nephews. The kids all get a huge kick out of this book and read it over and over and talk about it lots.
My 9-year-old daughter loves everything about animals, starting with dinosaurs when she was younger. When I got this book, I knew that this is too easy for a 9-year olds but since I could not find the similar books about parasites that are equally entertaining, I decided to get this for her. She loves it and now taking a bath is never an issue.
The good, the bad and the ugly. Fun way to teach 5th graders about parasites and microorganisms.
This was a fascinating book to read. Might give you the heebie geebies, but in a fun way. Really interesting read.
My 5-year old son loves books and animals. The insect kingdom fascinates him and he took an immediate interest in this book. This book on parasites gives children a sense of what parasites are and how they interact with people for better or worse.
Love this author and illustrator and have all their books which I enjoy perhaps even more than my 8 year old.
I read this book to my kids about a week ago and they loved it! My oldest son shocked me last night by telling our friends about the book and remembered some really difficult names...and he's 5!
