Incredible School Nurse Resource

Dr. Rotbart's book provides an awesome resource for school nurses who are on the front lines in dealing with infection control and identification. He combines facts with humor to make this a truly enjoyable read. This is a definite "must-have" book for every school nurse. C. Mattern, BSN, Certified School Nurse

Keeping kids healthy and away from bad germs

So much is written about the "hygiene hypothesis" and whether we are making our kids sicker by making their environments too sterile. "Germ Proof Your Kids" reviews all the evidence and finally gives parents a way to evaluate the issue for themselves and cut through the hype.

A 'must have' book for all parents

GERM PROOF YOUR KIDS tackles all the tough questions about kids' infections. Vaccine safety, antibiotic abuse, antibacterial soaps, miracle cures for the common cold, health foods, homeopathy, how many infections should make me worry about my kids' immunity, and can my kids play soccer when they're sick are just a few. There are almost 400 pages of guidance for every conceivable germ question that a parent may have. I think this is the most valuable book on my shelf right now.

Grandma knew it all along

I'm the grandmother of six. Just as the newspapers have become full of stories about "Superbugs", this wonderful book hit the shelves and answered all of my questions. Dr. Rotbart's writing is funny and wise. I love the way he puts the advice he got from his mom about germ defense (the same advice I gave to my kids) to scientific scrutiny - and guess what?! Mom and Grandma turn out to be pretty smart after all. I've sent the book to my adult kids to help them raise my grandkids (and to show them how brilliant I was as a mom!).
