This book is wonderful. My 5yo woke up one morning and asked me to show her the difference between T cells and B cells, because I work in the space and dinner conversations tend to get a bit nerdy. A friend recommended this wonderful book! She loves the story, we learned a lot, and I know we will keep coming back to this story as a family favorite.

Great kids book with nice intro to immune cells. Useful for adults too that need a high level overview of our immune cells. Definitely recommend!

I love buying this book for baby showers. Even if it's meant for slightly older kids, it's never too early to start learning about immunology!

Adorable illustrations. It would be fun to also buy the stuffed cells to go with it.
