This book is written for children to read with their parents.
It is about the life of a bacterium called Edward.
This is the second of my ‘science books for children’. In the first book about the adventures of a virus called Ezzy, the life cycle of viruses is explained and their impact on humans. This book attempts to help parents explain bacteria to children. Bacteria, like viruses, are harmful and can cause disease and sometimes death. Like viruses they are very small, and not visible to the naked eye. Unlike viruses, they can also have some benefits in the decomposition of waste and protective effects lining the gut. Some information about bacteria is provided throughout the book and in an appendix at the end there is information about where to find further information.
I hope you enjoy reading this book.
