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

Itchy scratchy creepy crawly feelings are guaranteed! Interesting book about microbes that manages to make reading about a micro biome interesting. There are LOL kid jokes throughout, think knock knock and “what do you call a photo that a microbe takes itself? A cell-fie”.  Some words have pronunciations noted but there are still a fair amount of science words included, although the concepts are presented pretty simply and in a readable way. The glossary was a little light on content as well. For a child interested in science or things that are ‘gross’ this would be a fun book. I am sure as medicine continues to look at the power of the micro biome and how to restore, this will be come a more common children/young adult book theme. Maybe it will inspire a future scientist too?

I received a electronic copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated, nor required to say something positive, in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my experience and observations while reading this book.
