This book teaches kids all about the trillions of helpful microbes that keep them healthy.

For centuries, most people believed that microbes were harmful, especially bacteria. But now we know most are actually good and very important for our health. Your microbiome is the community of trillions of microbes (too small to see!) that live in, on, and all around you. This book teaches kids what the microbiome is, what it does, how we can help it thrive, and why we can’t live without it. 

your microbiome! She co-founded Seed to pioneer the application of microbes for human and planetary health. Alongside extraordinary scientists, they develop probiotics for living organisms everywhere! She loves inspiring humans to learn about the incredible, invisible world of the microbiome.

Science-oriented but approachable

GREAT book for my 6 to 8-year-old grandnieces, whose parents are scientists, nurses, or scientific writers. Based on facts, encourages thought, highly approachable for kids and non-science adults alike.

Very educational, but needs way more pictures :)

Really informative & educational book, just wish it had a lot more pictures for kids!

Not engaging- not enough pictures

When I think about kids books, I think of engaging pictures and this book unfortunately failed in that aspect. Even the text graphics were plain. The information in the book is great, but I don’t see many children being inspired to learn from this.

Not for younger kids (under say, 8 or 9?)

There were almost no pictures and both of my grandkids pushed the book away. Further, the words were "too big" for their ages.
This book might be fine for kids 10+. Definitely not a younger kid's book by any means.
However, I loved the book! But this Oma loves everything microbiome related!

I love it. Very easy for my children to understand and learn. Thank you!
