Explaining TB to Kids

My eight-year-old and I have just read a fascinating book called Invincible Microbe, Tuberculosis and the Never-Ending Search for a Cure.  It’s by Jim Murphy and Alison Blank.

This book covers a lot of ground: science, history, racial tension, class strife, and horror. There is a lot of sadness, but not in a way that is too dark for elementary school.

 I had no idea somebody could make pathology so entertaining!
