Hundreds of books have been written about big creatures like whales and small animals like ants, but the teeniest, tiniest living things on our planet are often overlooked. Thanks to Nicola Davies, the story of microbes is being told in this beautiful fact- filled book. Learn about the different kinds of microbes, what they look like, and all the important jobs they do inside and outside of our bodies. Unlike science books that use photographs from high powered microscopes, the watercolor illustrations in this book will remind you of classic picture books. This book makes the subject of microbes enjoyable for even the most “science shy” reader!
