Allergies ISBN: 9780431021522
Royston, Angela
Published by Heinemann (It's Not Catching series), 2005
A surprising amount of detailed information in a book aimed at new readers. Large print, colour photos and diagrams show us different kinds of allergies, what causes them, how they affect people and something about treatment and prevention. A glossary of terms and an index will make this useful in schools. I thought it particularly interesting that biological washing powder is listed as an irritant - a detail that shows the level of information given. Impressive.
