The Good Germ Hotel: Meet Your Body’s Marvelous Microbes by Kim Sung-hwa & Kwon Su-jin and illustrated by Kin Ryung-eon

The Good Germ Hotel is a light-hearted look at the tiny organisms that live inside our bodies told from the point of view of one of the marvellous microbes themselves. Narrating the journey of what we eat from the moment we put it in our mouths to when it comes out the other end, the facts are presented in a fun and engaging way.

This marvellous microbe is visiting the Good Germ Hotel – a nine-year-old’s body. It doesn’t want to be confused with the bad germs that make us sick. Instead, it extols all the virtues of the good microbes and how they help us to stay healthy.

Good bacteria from all over our body are introduced as they work hard to do their jobs every day. What happens when we get sick, the role of antibiotics, using antibacterial products and information about how scientists study bacteria is all included.

The Good Germ Hotel is a brilliant non-fiction book for Key Stage Two. With the perfect mix of humour and science, children will love it while teachers will appreciate the clear, matter-of-fact and fun presentation of the information.

I can’t wait to share this with the Year 4 children at our school. Learning about digestion and ‘making poo’ is always one of the most popular science topics!

Thank you to What on Earth Books and Laura Smythe PR for this great book!
