This book is great for kids to know what germs are and what they can do to keep germs away. It's important for kids to understand what their bodies consist of and how to maintain them through hygiene care. Teaching younger kids how to properly wash or brush their teeth is a good lesson to learn.

Easy Reader, age 6-8. The only "Easy Reader" I have ever truly enjoyed. Germs! Germs! Germs!, is all about, get this, germs! Surprising, I know. Follow the germs as they tell you everywhere they are, and who they like (usually kids with nasty habits), and who they don't like (darn those kids who wash their hands!). "We're on the ground, we're in the air, we are germs and we are EVERYWHERE!"

This is a really cute, speedy read. Little kids will definitely be captivated by the fun little rhymes and

Germs are everywhere and they love to make kids and adults feel miserable. Germs! Germs! Germs! by Bobbi Katz and Steve Bjorkman, is a great way to teach beginning readers about how germs work and how to get rid of them.

Using rhyming text and wonderful pictures of the creepy and nasty germs that live in the world, this book is both educational and fun to read. Told from the germ's perspective, people like Sneezers and Coughers, Hurry-Ups, and Nose-Pickers are all friends of germs

It's fun to read. And educational. With illustrations of weird and comic germs. And it's from the germ's perspective.

"Knock-knock, body. Let us in!
We'll make you sick once we begin!

Every germ thinks it's just grand
to hop in a mouth on a dirty hand.

A tummy ache?
A cold?
The flu?
We can give them all to you.

We're on the ground.
We're in the air.
and we live everywhere!"

Germs! Germs! Germs! is a cute rhyming book to teach children about what germs are, how they are spread, and how to keep from getting sick. It would be good to use during an IB unit about healthy habits, or for a science class unit.

This book is a cute way to explain to young children about germs. It explains how germs get into your body and how to avoid getting sick. This would be a good way to incorporate health and wellness into your curriculum.

This book would be a great book to do a health lesson with. It talks about where germs live and how they can make you sick. Students need to learn to keep their hands out of their mouths and wash their hands frequently!

This book teaches kids how important it is to stay clean and protected from germs with a fun rhyming rhythm and great illustrations! It would be a good read for young kids who need to learn the importance of washing their hands.

I didn't like this book because it didn't have much scientific information about germs. And it wasn't all true...I know this and I am only six.
Sep 20, 2010 Rachel rated it it was ok
This book was amusing, light, and informative. My kids laughed at the pictures and wording of the book. By the end of the book they all saw the purpose of keeping clean. Great book for health class!

Ewww, if this easy reader doesn't call you to the sink to scrub your hands, what will? Explains in rhyming text what germs don't like and how to be healthy without being preachy.
