Book Review: All About Scabs

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Another of the My Body Science series, this one is also a disappointment.  This book describes the composition and function of a scab, accompanied by simply drawn illustrations of children commenting on and showing off their scabs.  The descriptive text doesn’t really match the illustrations, which are rather abstractly drawn.  For the level of description, I would expect near-photographic detail for accuracy of understanding.  The entertainment value of the gross factor is the only thing going for this book, and the main text will bore the crowd that gets excited about that.
