This book provides those magnified pictures of the gross little critters that kids crave. At 32 pages, the book covers the basics of what lice are, their basic varieties, and the life cycle of the human pests.In addition, this book (alone of the three we read) discusses Typhus, a disease transmitted by the vermin, as well as their presence in WWI and WWII. The author gives us a brief excerpt from a soldier's journal from WWI, and also shows a photograph of a soldier being sprayed with insecticide from WWII.CHAPTER HEADINGS are:Human-Loving ParasitesInfestationLice in ActionThe Fight Against LiceNotes/Glossary/For Further Exploration/IndexFour Stars :::Good photographs. This book provides a couple of historical references along with a description of Typhus so that children can understand that there can be danger associated with infestations.Special Note: at present shows this book to be a boardbook. It is a hardback.Pam T~
