Book Review - Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes
About the Book
Find out how the smallest things on the planet do some of the biggest jobs in this intriguing introduction to the world of microbes.
All around the world — in the sea, in the soil, in the air, and in your body — there are living things so tiny that millions could fit on an ant’s antenna. They’re busy doing all sorts of things, from giving you a cold and making yogurt to eroding mountains and helping to make the air we breathe. If you could see them with your eye, you’d find that they all look different, and that they’re really good at changing things into something else and at making many more microbes like themselves! From Nicola Davies comes a first exploration for young readers of the world’s tiniest living organisms.
My Take on the Book
This may be a children's book, but I learned so much about microbes.The story's content was written so well. Children will easily understand what a microbe is and how they can be helpful and harmful to humans and our world. The variety of the information was interesting. Emily Sutton's illustrations did an excellent job showing the size of microbes and their various shapes. I believe children will leave with an understanding of microbes and think about these tiny creations in a different light.
