We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
Mites and Bites is part of the Disgusting Body Facts series that explores some of the more distasteful aspects of the human body.
Even so, the book presents the ‘gross’ subject of human parasites in a fun yet informative way. Using a combination of vivid ‘under the microscope’ photographs, lively illustrations and ‘did you know’ fact bubbles, readers are introduced to some of the more unusual aspects of parasites that attack the human body. Topics discussed cover; head lice, fleas, dust mites, ticks, pinworms and also includes bee stings, mosquitoes and snake bites. Read “Mites and Bites” to learn about how parasites and the like, live and feed on your body!
