Grade 3-5-In Allergies, children learn about why some people can't tolerate dust or strawberries or dogs, as well as about the mechanics of allergic reactions, from antibodies to mast cells, in terms that they can understand. The authors also discuss different types of allergies (hay fever, lactose intolerance), testing (patch or scratch tests, elimination diets), and treatments, such as decongestants and allergy shots. Tooth Decay is similar in organization, beginning with an explanation of what decay is and how it is caused, followed by prevention tips and descriptions of dental procedures. Both books are well written and complete, without being overly technical. The occasional cartoon illustrations are clear and informative, and the frequent close-up color photographs of such things as allergic reactions, spores, gingivitis, and teeth are an added bonus.
