My 5 yr old and I read this book together. I knew it would catch his attention, he likes playing the detective role. What I hadn't realized is how informative this great app would be. Not only did my 5 yr old gain knowledge, I did as well. Going on this journey through the nose gave a great description as to what goes on inside your body when you catch a bug. Seeing what exactly happens was a real eye opener to my 5 yr old. Now he can fully understand why I always insist he wash his hands often and have him cover his mouth when he coughs. The language used in this app is easily understood and the illustrations were great. To actually "see" the bacteria and goop now gives us a greater appreciation as to what goes on inside the body when we catch a germ. I love the addition of information through words, pictures and facts of the Immune System at the end of the book. Also included are ways to boost up your immune system through colorful, whole foods and examples of the foods are included. Combined with the addition of the glossary really makes this a quality, top notch app and is worth every penny! Thank you for the wealth of information contained in this wonderful app!
Battle with the bugs
Read this story with my 6,4 and 3 year old children. The tune was so catchy that they all hummed it through the entire story. It was a clever way to teach children about their bodies in the simplest form. It also made it fun for them since they got to see the bugs throughout the pages. I will admit that it was also educational to me as well as entertaining. Great learning tool.
Really educational and fun story!
This is a wonderful story about the body! My kids always ask me to read this story at bedtime! Great learning content, the illustrations are great. Who knew Mucus could be so funny!
