Summary

Summary

Will the United States be overrun by disease-infected mosquitoes? These questions and more are discussed in this informative and easy-to-read book.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-9-The attractive format of these introductory titles will entice young report writers. Both well-researched volumes provide information about the disease's origins, history, symptoms and treatment, and prevention. Malaria explains that this disease still poses a threat in many places. While the introduction reads somewhat like a tabloid, the main text is more objective and informative. Statistics are given but the sources are not credited. In Smallpox, readers will discover that while the last case of this disease was reported in 1977, there are still small supplies of this virus in laboratories. Both books have large-print texts, wide margins, and abundant color photos and reproductions. Notes of interest have color backgrounds and colorful chapter-title pages have a border of magnified cells.-Marilyn Fairbanks, Azure IRC, Brockton High School, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
