Germs Up CloseHave you ever seen a germ up close? Really, really close?

Award-winning science writer Sara Levine introduces readers to a variety of viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and fungi that can make people sick--including SARS-CoV-2, E. coli, and ringworm. Micrographs and illustrations show extremely close-up views of the germs that are at once incredible and a little gross.

The book concludes with tips for staying healthy as well as information about the immune system, vaccines, and medicines. It gives readers accessible, up-to-date scientific information presented in a way that emphasizes curiosity rather than fear.

Sara Levine is a veterinarian, author, and educator who loves animals, books, and books about animals. Her picture books include Flower TalkBone by BoneFossil by Fossil, and Tooth by Tooth, which received the AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books and was recognized by Bank Street College as a Best Children's Book of the Year.
