Children's Choice Award winner Bethany Barton dives into the microscopic world of germs with fascinating information and tons of humor!
This book is covered in germs! But to be fair, so are we. Did you know that there are more viruses and bacteria on Earth than there are stars in the known universe? Learn all about the microbes in and on our bodies that help us survive, the ones that don't, and everything in between. Written in Bethany Barton's trademark balance of informative and hilarious, I'm Trying to Love Germs is a perfect entry point to viruses, the pandemic, and the importance of washing our hands.
