Achoo! Why Pollen Counts - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Spring has arrived and pollen is in the air. Baby Bear does not like the pollen—it sticks to his fur and makes him itchy and sneezy. He’s allergic! Achoo! He just wishes the pollen were gone. But when his friends gather to tell him why they need pollen, Baby Bear learns that pollen is good for the forest and provides food for many animals, including him!

My Review:

If you have an allergy to pollen, it can make you miserable and I'm sure sufferers wish it didn't exist.  Achoo! Why Pollen Counts is a children's book that details why pollen is so important (even to those who have to battle with its side effects).  The book tells of Baby Bear, who is allergic to pollen.  Baby Bear comes across other animals and insects who explain why pollen is important to them.  For instance, he learns that some spiders catch pollen in their web and eat it.  The animal illustrations are adorable, and the story is interestingly told.

The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book contains activities on understanding allergies, flower parts, the pollination process, pollinator matching, and bees: the great pollinators.

Win It!

One person will win a book copy of Achoo! Why Pollen Counts.

Saying I have allergies in an understatement last month every time I walked out side my eyes started running my nose was itching by the time I got to the store I looked like I had been on an all night crying fit. Every time someone stared a bit too long I was sure to mention it was just allergies.

I have allergies all year round.I think it's because here in Ca. we haven't had much rain for the last 3 winters to clean the air of all the pollen. Thank you for the chance :)

YES! Mine are off the charts. I mean literally. I took that back scratch test, and they were off the charts. It goes 1-4 and I was 4+ on everything.
