Eradicating smallpox was one of the great medical success stories in human history. The disease once killed large numbers of people, but vaccination programs brought case numbers to zero by the 1970s. Smallpox explores the history and science behind this disease, as well as how it's treated. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards.

Deadly Diseases – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

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.
