This is the ideal STEM book for children: it uses fascinating bite-size facts, clear and simple explanations, and attractive and absorbing illustrations to demystify the hidden world of microbes.
The book includes clear explanations about how viruses spread, the role of antibodies and the importance of vaccines – essential understanding for us all during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic; in fact, there’s a whole spread dedicated to COVID-19.

Contents include Cells, Types of Microbes, Bacterial Reproduction, Microbial Technology and Epidemics. To keep things engaging for the intended audience, there are plenty of entertaining illustrations on every page and real life applications ( the importance of washing your hands!).
