Vaccines Explained will reach a wide audience from pre K to middle school aged students. Facts are clearly stated and well explained. The illustrations are vibrant and accurately follow the text...the book is well written and an excellent way to explain vaccines to young children.
- Rose Puleo R.N., School Nurse

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.

5 of 5 Perfect for explaining vaccines for little kids January 28, 2022
Reviewer: Jade (Families Exploring Culture Podcast) from Los Angeles, CA  
I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had my kids ask a lot of questions this past year about vaccines, how they work, and why we have them.

This book is great introductory text to help kids learn about vaccines and how they work. I appreciated the simple language and the diverse set of people represented in the book.
