I adore the children's book I got called Achoo! Why Pollen Counts By Sheenen Bersani to review.
An added perk was getting a special card from the author Shennen Bersani!
Plus the author signed it to my nephew Edison. He is going to get this book very soon.
What Achoo! Why Pollen Counts is about:
A baby bear is allergic to pollen. The grass is covered with it. The pollen makes baby bear sneeze, itch, and his eyes get watery.
The story covers what pollen is, how we need it, and what animals eat it to help them survive.
What I like about Achoo! Why Pollen Counts:
I've always been an allergy/asthma sufferer. This book relates to me. I know my nephew Edison is getting the book, but I also know his family is filled with allergy sufferers as well. It takes a complex topic, and makes it understandable to anyone.
I like the writing, and the cute illustrations. One thing that is different about this book compared to others is that it has 4 pages of learning activities in the back for creative minds:
- Ah-Achoo! Understanding Alleriges
- Flower Parts
- The Pollination Process
- Pollinator Matching
- Bees: The Great Pollinators
Best for ages 4-7. Isaak who is almost 8 enjoyed it. I think the illustrations are great for younger. Kids love to be read to. They may not be able to do the activities in the back when they are younger than 4, but they still will enjoy this story!

The illustrations certainly are lovely! And this is a great book that can really help littles understand allergies a bit better.
I like the pictures in this one too. My son favors books with animals.
I never read about pollen before. It looks very interesting..
I have HORRIBLE allergies in the spring! This sounds like a cute book.
This is cute.
You know I love kids books :)
