Review: When it comes to a book that is inspiring, interesting, and surprising there are many books to pick. However there is one particular book that is all this and much more, and that would be Industrial Age Medicine by Rebecca Vickers. Did you know medicine started to advance and change in the 1700's? This book informs readers about the changes in medicine. Did you know that in the Industrial Revolution in cities where people were dirty diseases spread more quickly? Thanks to the Industrial Revolution, people figured out many medicine advancements. For example doctors discovered that illness travels faster in a densely populated area. Also, they discovered that a vaccination would introduce the immune system to a substance so the person will not get the disease. I had no idea vaccinations had been around for so long!
Industrial Age Medicine is an exceptional book that I recommend to anyone because I learned so much from it. Plus it's relatively easy to understand! Schools should also purchase copies of this book because it's an excellent choice for guided reading groups. Although the concepts are somewhat challenging, the reading level is very appropriate for middle-school readers. Plus, it's a high-interest non-fiction book. It's become so much more important for students to read non-fiction, so finding high-interest books is very important. In a nutshell Industrial Age Medicine is easy, interesting and surprising, so if schools haven't bought copies yet, it's time to do so!
