From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. Television science personality Bill Nye makes plenty of appearances in this large-format volume, with his photo on most double-page spreads and a tiny picture of his face above each page number. But even for kids who aren't Nye fans, the book offers a pretty good introduction to bacteria and viruses. The approach is lively and colorful, with many excellent photos and jazzy-looking drawings illustrating objects, ideas, and processes. Unlike the many nonfiction books with more graphic style than verbal substance, this one does a good job of explaining things (even those that aren't seen) and offering activities that give children worthwhile, hands-on experiences. Though there is no index, readers can use the clear table of contents to locate general topics such as bacteria, viruses, the immune system, vaccination, antibiotics, and the discovery of germs. Tips on hygiene emerge naturally from the discussion. Nye keeps the treatment light as well as logical, making this a good bet for science collections. Carolyn Phelan
