Published by Heinemann (It's Not Catching series), 2005
Large print, colour photographs and diagrams explain the differences between cuts, grazes and scratches, how the skin protects the body from germs, how these accidents happen, how they can be treated, the importance of wound cleansing, and about plasters, dressings, stitches and sticky strips. We also learn how a wound heals and the importance of not picking scabs. Finally, there is a short section on prevention. A glossary and an index help make the solid, basic information accessible.
