Inside Your Insides: A Guide to the Microbes That Call You Home

Inside Your Insides - A Guide to the Microbes That Call You HomeWritten by Claire Eamer, Illustrated by Marie-Eve Tremblay

I think I was a teenager when I learned that tiny organisms lived on my body…and it totally freaked me out! If only I had this book to help me learn the reasons for those creepy crawlies. I was fascinated with this book from beginning to end. Not only does it explain the different kinds of microbes and how they function in the world, it also gives interesting little tidbits such as: scientists have found a connection between brain function and emotions to what kind of microbes are in our gut. Love it! The illustrations are colorful and clever. There are also jokes at the side of some of the pages: “How does a microbe call home? Using its cell phone.” So fun. This is a very informative and enjoyable book and even though from the cover it might appear to be for young students, it is appropriate for older students as well.
