Christine M. Irvin4 Stars Out Of 5A book for kids about malariaNovember 2, 2010Christine M. IrvinQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Little Things Make Big Differences: A Story about Malaria, written by Rev. John Nunes and Monique Nunes, is based on a true story about Rehema, a girl who lives in Tanzania.
When Rehema was just a baby, she was bitten by a mosquito and contracted malaria. Her parents walked many miles to a hospital to get treatment for her. Because of this, she survived and her parents learned how to protect themselves and others from mosquito bites.
Most of the book is devoted to Rehema's story. The last few pages give readers ways they can help those in countries like Tanzania.
The illustrations by Mark Schroder are detailed and expressive, but they are also done in darker, muted colors that fit the tone of the story.
What I Like: This is a good book for children to learn about malaria and how it is spread. The story is an interesting one and is well-written.
What I Dislike: The layout of the book is a bit awkward in regards to the binding. One of the two-page spreads has a person's face partially obscured, catching half the person's mouth and nose in the folds of the spiral binding, which looks rather odd. On another page, a person's elbow looks like it has been cut in half.
Overall Rating: Very good.
