Your microbiome

Inside Your Insides: A Guide to the Microbes That Call You Home
by Claire Eamer
illustrated by Marie-Ève Tremblay

Our bodies are covered (inside and out!) with bacteria, viruses, fungi, and more! But not to worry, these teeny weeny organisms - or microbes - are mostly harmless. In fact, they're essential in helping us fight infections and digest our food. So a healthy microbiome is a must! 

In her entertaining and up-to-date book, Claire Eamer gives us the scoop on microbes and their purpose. The cheerful text is supplemented by sidebars of interesting facts and corny jokes that will keep readers engaged. Tremblay's cartoonish, friendly pictures add to the fun.

A very appealing book.
