Book Review #1355 I Feel Better with a Frog in My Throat by Carlyn Beccia

Book Review #1355
I Feel Better with a Frog in My Throat: History's Strangest Cures by Carlyn Beccia
Rating: two stars (out of four)

There were definitely some strange cures and remedies in this book. Few I would have ever want to try. I felt a little sick when I read about some of the cures because they were gross. I'm also fairly squeamish, though. But I think children who are interested in medicine or learning more about medicine usage through history might find this book entertaining. Though curious children be warned - they shouldn't try these remedies themselves! I liked the illustrations and I appreciated the extensive bibliography at the back; it showed all the author's research. I might recommend.
