Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Three series entries that outline for primary-grade students the differences between medicines and illegal drugs and from whom it is appropriate to take medicines. Super includes a simplified explanation of what drugs do to the body, describes some commonly abused drugs, and discusses the consequences of drug abuse, with suggestions for ways to withstand peer pressure. The fact that children face problems and need to seek help for them is raised as well as the assurance that most people do not use illegal drugs. Super assumes that readers come from intact families that love and care for them, and does not address childhood problems outside these idyllic suburban scenes. The easy-to-read texts are somewhat choppy and repetitive, but convey the essential facts. Sims' colorful cartoons reinforce and sometimes go beyond the narrative to explain a concept. While the amount of information included doesn't need three separate books, these titles are superior to Judith Hemming's Why Do People Take Drugs? (Gloucester, 1988), and they do serve a curriculum need. What Are Drugs? provides the most information. --Martha Gordon, South Salem Library, NY
