9781593540579: You Can't Take Your Body to a Repair Shop: A Book About What Makes You Sick

Jam-packed with information -- grown-ups will learn from this book, too! It's written by a doctor with more than thirty years experience treating children and families.
The latest addition to the popular You Can't... series focuses on common illnesses that affect children. Fred Ehrlich explains what makes you sick in easy-to-understand prose. He makes distinctions, such as between bacteria and virus, clear. At once engaging and sympathetic, Dr. Ehrlich touches on everyday illnesses such as: tummy aches, vomiting, diarrhea, colds and flu, warts and pimples, and various allergies.
In the time-tested format that made You Can't Taste a Pickle with Your Ear so funny, the book includes humorous verse to complement the matter-of-fact text and is delightfully punctuated by Amanda Haley's madcap illustrations to ensure a tone that is at once light and reassuring. In fact, Dr. Ehrlich is careful not to frighten children, reminding us all that most of the time our bodies work just fine, and that even when we're sick, our bodies usually get well by themselves.

About the Author:

Fred Ehrlich, M.D. is a pediatrician and a child psychiatrist. He has spent dozens of years advising families on the emotional and physical care of young children. He practices in the Boston area.

Amanda Haley holds a B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She currently resides in Ohio with her husband and golden retriever, Sally.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 - With plenty of facts and lots of gross-out appeal (you can't get warts if a toad pees on you, and motion sickness can cause vomiting), the brief topics here range from digestive issues to allergies to blisters. Throughout the simple yet informative text, comical poetry and watercolor cartoon art amplify the levity. Haley's multicultural cast suffers green-faced bellyaches, scarlet pimples, and more. The authors have included 11 medical specialties in a glossary, and a reassuring afterword for parents touts common sense in treating maladies. - Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
