Non-fiction book review - Inside Your Insides

Inside Your Insides by Claire Eamer

An excellent volume of non-fiction. Loads of information in language that is accessible without being oversimplified. Each fact is supported with a brief explanation/exploration. We learn not just what microbes are in and on the human body but what purpose they serve, how our microbe levels can change, and what effect such changes have on one's health. Eamer doesn't shy away from details either. Some of these facts might make your skin crawl but that doesn't make it any less fascinating. Cartoon style illustrations add to the appeal. A great choice for young readers with even a passing interest in science.
