Vaccines Explained is a richly-illustrated and thoughtfully written book, ideal for explaining the concept of vaccines and germs for preschoolers through early elementary grades. The book gives parents and teachers many opportunities for conversations about how vaccines work against a variety of germs, and why vaccines are nothing to fear. The illustrations give plenty of opportunities to discuss what doctors, pharmacists, and scientists do, and how vaccines have helped people of all ages, all over the world. I recommend this timely book as an inspiration for family and classroom conversations.
