Discover the extraordinary world of viruses, from their creation and transmission to what we can do to stop them, in this science-based resource for kids 8 to 12.

If we didn’t know it before, we certainly know it now: Viruses can be powerful—so powerful, in fact, that they can hold the world in their grip for months at a time. But what exactly is a virus? Where do they come from and what do they do to our bodies? How do they spread, and what can we do to protect ourselves?

Author Marc ter Horst tackles these questions with playfulness and humor, while Wendy Panders’ quirky and enlightening illustrations bring the text to life. Snot, Sneezes, and Super-Spreaders is an accessible and engaging guide to help young readers understand our current world, with information on:

  • Pandemics, addressed in an age-appropriate way that goes beyond doom and gloom.

  • The value and importance of vaccines for addressing viral diseases.

  • Fascinating, icky diseases of the past—and those that still hang around today.

  • The science behind how to protect ourselves and our communities from current and future viruses.

Foreword by Dr. Jennifer Gardy. Author’s note. Index. Full-color illustrations.
