Synopsis by Alice Day
While germs and viruses cause people to become sick, certain tiny organisms are also beneficial to mankind. Young viewers will get a glimpse through a microscope to see what these micro-organisms look like, and scientists explain to LeVar Burton things to remember about keeping healthy. In Reading Rainbow: Germs Make Me Sick!, the featured work is by Melvin Berger, and offers many facts about germs, how they sicken humans, and the body's defenses. Burton goes to an organic farm, and learns how microscopic organisms aid in the production of food.
