    Max Archer is a kid detective who solves medical mysteries. In his second case, he helps Emily, who has been having a lot of stomachaches. He helps her explore possible causes of her stomach pain - lactose intolerance, constipation, and stress - by asking her to perform various tests. After he identifies the cause of her discomfort, he provides her with some solutions for making the pain go away.Though this book is short, and the content is age-appropriate for first and second graders, this is probably not a beginning chapter book for them to read on their own simply because the medical vocabulary would be difficult to decode without prior exposure to those words. That said, I think kids are naturally curious about the human body, and this book is a great way to introduce them to happenings in their own bodies that might seem mysterious. The tone of the book is very reminiscent of Nate the Great, and the medical information itself is presented visually as well as textually, to give kids the context they need to understand complicated bodily functions. Even “poop” is handled in a very mature and matter-of-fact way, and Max himself comments on the fact that some kids think it’s funny, but he doesn’t.This book would certainly be helpful to kids experiencing their own stomachaches, but even kids who don’t have that specific problem will enjoying following Max’s diagnostic process. Though it might not be that believable to an adult that a child would know all of this information and be able to give reliable medical advice to other kids, I think kids like learning from kids their own age, even fictional ones. I think readers will be more likely to retain what they learn from Max than what they learn from drier, more technical science books.Share the Max Archer books with your aspiring doctors and scientists and learn something yourself along the way!
