PreS-This title provides short, descriptive instructions for inhibiting the spread of germs. However, while Verdick does an excellent job of describing how to get rid of germs, she never touches on what they are or what they do, aside from a small note by a teddy bear doctor stating that "Germs can make you sick." Simple colorful cartoons clearly depict the action. Some well-presented tips for parents and teachers on ways to use the book effectively with preschoolers and how to prevent the spread of germs at home or at school are appended. This book is a good choice for teaching youngsters the basics about hygiene, especially if used in conjunction with other materials that present germs and sickness in an age-appropriate manner.-Tamara E. Richman, Somerset County Library System, Bridgewater, NJ Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"Germs Are Not For Sharing by Elizabeth Verdick is a great book for preschoolers through early elementary children. The book's language is easy enough to understand, yet doesn't talk down to the kids or sound babyish."--Andrea Coventry, Montessori Educator, Andi's Kids Books Blog
