I wish I could’ve helped the dogs too!

I read this to my 7 year old, and he begged me to read at least 2 chapters at a time. His favorite subject is science, and he loves dogs. I thought it would be a good introduction into rabies and the science behind it. My son loved it, and has a stronger desire to make a contribution to the world. As for me it made my mama heart cry just thinking of the Mom who went to Louis for help.
It mentions rabies vaccines, and lead into a great discussion on Covid.

In a small, quiet French village , young Louis Pasteur holds a curiosity for everything. His mind is brimming with questions: What makes crystals? Is poison alive? What are acids? Finding answers to his questions becomes a matter of life and death, however, as the wolf attacks increase in his village and the “poisonous” bites take the lives of the villagers! This is just the beginning of Louis’s exciting, life-long journey of incredible scientific breakthroughs.

“Inspiring biographies are among the best kind of books to put into children’s hands, and Louis Pasteur’s story is too important to pass up. We are grateful for the chance to bring this beautiful book back into print” ~Jenny Phillips
