INSIDE YOUR INSIDES: A GUIDE TO THE MICROBES THAT CALL YOU HOME is my latest kids' science book, and it's published by Kids Can Press. It's an entertainingly illustrated kids' guide to the human microbiome, with great artwork by Marie-Eve Tremblay. (By the way, for more about the importance of great artwork when your topic is basically invisible, check out my blog post on the subject on Sci/Why.)

Wherever you go, tiny hitchhikers tag along for the ride. The hitchhikers are actually microbes --- tiny living things so small that you need a microscope to see them. And every person carries around trillions and trillions of these critters.

Readers will be startled (and likely a little grossed out!) by the many places they live, both inside and outside our bodies. Just as surprising, only some of them are bad guys that cause disease, and many of them are actually good guys that keep us healthy. There's even research currently being done on ways to improve or fix our collection of microbes as a way to make us healthier.

Look for INSIDE YOUR INSIDES at your nearest bookstore, or order it from any online bookstore.
