This book explains what burns and blisters are, how they are caused, the importance of taking care around hot objects such as irons, saucepans, kettles and hot drinks. We learn about sunburn too and how it should be treated and prevented. Diagrams of the skin, how it can be damaged and how it heals are included, and we learn that serious burns must be treated by a doctor and can even be life-threatening. Finally, there is a short section on avoiding accidents. Large print, a glossary, an index, and a list of further reading will make this useful at lower primary level.
