Editorial Review

Deadly Diseases – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Cover: COVID-19

This grisly collection looks at epidemics and pandemics of the past and ­present, ­explaining each in a simple, relatable way that remains true to the science without leaning into the overly morbid aspects of discussing illnesses. Archival images and photographs of sick people are used to show symptoms and discuss feelings, but they are also paired with scientific imaging to balance out the content. Educators will appreciate the way this rich series seamlessly combines personal narratives, primary sources, and scientific breakdowns of each disease so they can easily be introduced in classrooms. VERDICT While largely focusing on medical science, this series also does a good job weaving relevant social justice perspectives into the narrative timelines of each disease.
