You Wouldn't Want to Live Without Vaccinations! (You Wouldn't Want to Live Without…) (You Wouldn't Want to Live Without...) Cover Image
By Anne Rooney, David Antram (Illustrator)


Learn the fascinating history of vaccination, and describes in simple terms how and why vaccination works.

This series takes readers (Ages 8-12) on a historical journey, examining how people coped in the past and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. Each book features full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles to heighten interest, making the series attractive even to reluctant readers.Sticking sharp needles into small children doesn't sound like a nice thing to do. But vaccination is definitely a case of being "cruel to be kind." This simple technique has saved millions from deadly diseases-and in future, with new methods of delivery, we might even be able to do without that needle.
