Beloved children's book author Theodor Seuss Geisel passed away in 1991, but his widow has found a series of unpublished manuscripts that are soon to be printed by Random House.  The first one, What Pet Should I Get is due out in July, and features the siblings from One Fish Two Fish trying to decide on a new pet.  Twenty five years after the release of his last book, Oh, the Places You'll Go!, the world is set to go into the mind of Dr Seuss once more.

"Melanie's Marvelous Measles" is a Real Book That Exists

According to the book's description on Amazon, author Stephanie Messenger "has devoted her life to educating people about vaccines and natural health choices."

Natural meaning anti-vax, of course. From the book's back cover

Melanie's Marvelous Measles was written to educate children on the benefits of having measles and how you can heal from them naturally and successfully. Often today, we are being bombarded with messages from vested interests to fear all diseases in order for someone to sell some potion or vaccine, when, in fact, history shows that in industrialized countries, these diseases are benign and, according to natural health sources, beneficial to the body.

Having raised three children vaccine free and childhood disease free, I have experienced many times when my children's vaccinated peers succumb to the childhood diseases they were vaccinated against. Surprisingly, there were times when my unvaccinated children were blamed for their peers' sickness. Something which is just not possible when they didn't have the diseases at all.
The internet isn't taking this one lying down, of course; the Amazon reviews include requests for a Braille version for a child blinded by measles and a glowing review from someone who claims to "specialize in itty bitty coffins". Leave your own review and, more importantly, VACCINATE YOUR KIDS.
