467 (2015 #24). Head Lice

This is a cute book in Elise Gravel's "Disgusting Critters" series.  The illustrations are funny and should interest children, while the text (especially the comments by the louse) has some humor for the adults that might be reading the book aloud, yet is simple enough for many early readers to comprehend.

I do think that the last page, rather than advising running away if you see a louse (they ARE hard to see), could instead reminded children not to share hats, combs, and other items that come in contact with their hair and heads, and possibly add information about treatments for head lice.

This would be a good addition to a school or classroom library (or one used by future teachers).
