Booklist - 09/15/2016 Scholastic’s A True Book: Health series brings its standard bright and accessible approach to topics concerning health and the human body. Aided by bold, easy-to-follow infographics and large, glossy photographs, these titles explore a variety of diseases, disabilities, and wellness activities. Flu examines not only the symptoms and recovery process of this highly mutable disease but delves into its history, discussing pandemics such as the devastating outbreak of 1918. Each title begins with a short narrative to help guide readers, often providing a look at how an illness or disorder is found and tested. This conversational opener seems more geared toward younger readers than the science-focused chapters that follow, with the exception of Relaxation and Yoga, but a wide range of readers will find the included statistics, time lines, and clear diagrams useful in conducting classroom research. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
