Book Review - Malcolm Finney Medical Detective - The Case of... Itch and Rash

About the Book
Malcolm Finney, Medical Detective: The Case of Itch and Rash, is an adventurous story that explores the skin disease called eczema. It is a book that teaches affected children and their peers about the cause and treatment of this condition. The message this book imparts is that of empowerment, healthy ideals, and tolerance of those whose skin may look just a little different.

About the Author
Erika’s interest in writing and science began in her elementary years. If she wasn’t exploring the woods around her, she was at the library checking out stacks of books. She also penciled away at short stories and poetry. These childhood pursuits blossomed during her studies at The Ohio State University. After obtaining a Bachelor’s in Nursing, she spent several years as a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse before deciding to pursue graduate school. Her collegiate years concluded with a Master’s in Family Practice as a Nurse Practitioner and a Master’s in Journalism and Communications. As a professional in the medical field, she has focused on family health and dermatology. When she’s not being a medical detective or writer, Erika enjoys spending time with her two wonderful children and loving husband.

My Take on the Book
This is a great book to read together as a family and it was filled with so many great ideas and resources that will help the whole family learn more about the human body. There are some great new characters that the whole family will love. The illustrations were fun and so colorful and truly drew you further into the book. All-in-all this was a great book that the whole family will love!
