sneeze!

Summary:
Find just about everything a youngster (or adult for that matter) might want to know about why we sneeze.
Educational Themes:
The picture-book-like quality makes this an easy book to share with young readers. But there is also a lot of detail (scientific and technical) that would make the science of sneezes interesting for older kids.
Reading Level:
6.8
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
9 to 12
Recommended Age To Read Together:
6 to 10
Age of child:
Read with a third-grade class.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. There is no question that this is a valuable classroom tool, but I don't think this would be a "favorite bedtime" read for most kids.
Little Kid Reaction:
Overall, the reaction of the class was lukewarm.
Big Kid Reaction:
This book is great for doing a report and it could definitely be of use in a school's health curriculum.
Pros:

The unique approach (magnifying pollen, pepper, dust mites, cat hair and things that makes us sneeze and then adding color is certainly eye catching. Lots of information a plus.

Cons:

With the right audience this is a "home run," but you need to find that right audience. The age level offered is not a big help, but the setting might be: like a unit of the body, good health, etc.
