Summary

A fun look at the world of bacteria and other microorganisms.

Meet the bacteria, viruses, and other germs and microbes that are all around, but too small for us to see. Learn how they keep us and our world running.

What do a squid that glows, fungus that grows, and tiny creatures in the soil under your toes all have in common? They're all part of the world of microbiology! In this awesome introductory book for kids, you'll find out about bacteria, viruses, and other germs and microbes. The Bacteria Book explores why we need bacteria, and introduces readers to its microbial mates - viruses, fungi, algae, and protozoa.

The Bacteria Book is a fun and informative introduction to a STEAM subject that brings kids up-close with the big world of tiny science.
