Praise For…


“The arrival of ‘A Shot in the Arm!’ couldn’t be more timely. . . This fascinating and enlightening journey takes us around the world and introduces us to a range of scientific superstars of germ theory and vaccination development. . . The author’s goals are clear and vitally important, and the delivery is lively and engaging.”
— The New York Times

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Thoroughly researched and fascinating, this effort concludes with outstanding backmatter for a rich, accurate examination of the critical role of vaccines. Essential." 
— Kirkus Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW** 
"Brown could be considered the format’s premiere historian for young readers; his exhaustive research is always coupled with an understanding of human motivation and an inviting, unostentatious visual style, all while connecting the past to the world we live in now." 
— Booklist

**STARRED REVIEW** 
"Shedding light on a topic that’s all too timely, this thorough chronicle of vaccination is essential." 
— School Library Journal

"Brown’s readers will be ready to contextualize the rapid pace of contemporary research, the calculated risk and anticipated rewards for the first COVID-19 vaccine users, and the repeating theme of public welfare vs. individual rights, as hotly debated now as in the past." 
— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Brown’s typical loose pen and watercolor illustrations, including single pages, double-page spreads, and varied panel layouts, make this well-researched volume—part history, part science— engagingly easy to read." 
— The Horn Book Magazine
