From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2. The progress of a cold is illustrated through one child's illness. How germs are spread and the effect that they have on the body are discussed in clear, simple language. Unfortunately, although the term "germs" is used repeatedly, it is not defined. An explanation of how cells fight germs may raise more questions than it answers. Although cataloged in nonfiction, this title might be more appropriately shelved with beginning readers. Its fictional aspects, which will help readers identify with the factual material, also detract from its use as an information source. Though written for a slightly older audience, Melvin Berger's Germs Make Me Sick! (HarperCollins, 1995) gives a more detailed treatment of germs and their effects.?Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY

From Booklist:

Gr. 1^-2. This book shows how effective nonfiction can be in an easy-to-read format. The information is conveyed in a story about Sam, who starts sneezing at his baseball game. A sore throat follows, and it is clear that Sam has a cold. Using a compact vocabulary, Demuth explains how germs spread colds, why medicine does not cure colds, and how to avoid cold germs. Peppy full-color drawings are able to find amusing moments in the discussion. For early report writers, but browsers will enjoy this, too. Ilene Cooper
