New Book Shows Children How the Body Fights Germs
Date:6/19/2013

OMAHA, Neb. (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

Author Byron Oberst draws on his experiences as a pediatric physician to give children a basic explanation of how the body’s defense mechanisms work in his colorful new book, “Brownie Bill and the Health Pirates” (published by Trafford Publishing).

Ideal for children 2 – 7, “Brownie Bill and the Health Pirates” tells the story of Bobbie, a little boy who wakes up with a sore throat and fever one morning. His mother takes him to visit Doctor Getwell, who prescribes antibiotics and reminds Bobbie to drink lots of fluids and always remember to wash his hands.

Bobbie gets some help from his friend Brownie Bill, who helps Bobbie’s body fight off the germs brought in by Black Bart, the leader of the germ pirates who invade children’s bodies and make them sick. Colorful illustrations by Bill Shook bring the characters to life, and children learn important techniques for battling germs in this informational story.

An excerpt from “Brownie Bill and the Health Pirates”:

“The Brownie at the Nerve Center is working very hard to send and receive all messages about everything needed to help little Bobbie get well.

Now Brownie Bill’s troops and Reddie and Whitey’s pals join forces and jump into the bloodstream to attack the bad germ pirates!”
