Gut Garden: A Journey Into the Wonderful World of Your Microbiome (Hardcover)
'An effective combination of clear science writing and entertaining illustrations. A great addition to any children's library or as a complementary text for science classes studying the microbiome'. -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL 'Tubby, expressive microbes guide readers through this deceptively comprehensive, gleefully illustrated guide to the human microbiome'. -- PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY A journey into the wonderful world of your microbiome Within our bodies hides an entire world of organisms called microbes. They boost our immune systems, digest our food, regulate our metabolism and even impact on our mental health. Through Katie Brosnan's personable illustrations, we follow the digestive process from the moment the food enters our mouths to the moment waste leaves our bodies. Along the way we learn about this fascinating scientific frontier and gain an insight into the vast ecosystem that exists inside us.
