Introducing Herrick Library’s Book Briefs! Book Briefs provide you with a short selection from one of our library books. It’s a quick look and audio preview to see if it’s something you’re interested in, and maybe to learn a little something too, as all of our books have a health or wellness theme.
We hope you enjoy this brief sample (2 minutes) of the children’s book, Germs Make Me Sick! by Melvin Berger. Listen and watch with kids 5-8 years old and learn about how viruses infect body cells and how to stay healthy, explained in a kid friendly way with endearing illustrations. It’s perfect in this time of COVID-19 to help little ones understand what’s going on. If this sample has you intrigued, check out the book from the library’s collection when we reopen or find it at a retailer online.
For an activity to go along with this book, check out this Word Search from Reading is Fundamental, using words found in the book.
We hope you enjoy our first Book Brief!
