Taking Medicine

“Another useful and appealing series from Crabtree Publishing...these books would be equally well-used in a library, at home or on a classroom or daycare bookshelf. The cover images themselves would tempt any child to pick them up, the language inside is suitable for early readers, the balance of text and illustrations makes each page a visual delight, and the writing style is lively enough for any read-aloud session...makes for a good read for children, teachers and parents.” —Resource Links, 02/09 “...excellent picks for elementary-grade health collections.” —Children’s Bookweatch, 02/09 “...Story first, discussion after is the premise of these books, and it is successfully executed. Precepts about health and safety are presented through the plot and character development...Gordon pumps up the humor with illustrations, particularly the dirty or daredevil children whose antics are reminiscent of the “Calvin and Hobbs” cartoon strip. The closing questions and activities offer a number of opportunities for extended (and fun) discourse.” —School Library Journal, 11/08
