A KIDS COMPANY ABOUT released their first book on human biology, A Kids Book About Your Microbiome, by Ara Katz. Parent to an almost-six-year-old, Katz is the co-founder, alongside Raja Dhir, of microbial sciences company, Seed Health.
A Kid’s Book About Your Microbiome invites kids (and their grownups) to discover the microbiome—the community of trillions of microbes (too small to see!) that live in, on, and all around us. Seeded at birth, our microbiome performs critical functions, from how we digest food to how our immune system knows what’s helpful or harmful. And, the bacteria in our microbiome alone make up 50% of the cells in our body!
Written for kids five years and up, A Kids Book About Your Microbiome answers questions like, “What is my microbiome?”, “Where did it come from?”, “What does it do?”, and “How can I help it thrive?”.
To celebrate the launch, Seed created a unique digital “learn to earn” experience, where the first 500 curious humans can unlock a free copy of the book for a child in their life. Participants simply enter their email to access a “science class” in their inbox and then ace a quiz to receive a book. Seed is also gifting books to literary organizations, schools, and community libraries to ensure superorganisms everywhere can learn about their microbiome.
A Kids Book About Your Microbiome by Seed, available to purchase from akidsco.com for £19.95.
