Pleased To Meet You, I'm Bacterium
Writing and Illustration
Dr. Chana Gabay
In this book the bacterium presents itself
and describes its importance to our life, health and surroundings
in a humoristic manner, accompanied by amusing illustrations.
A new approach to bacteria, which was not popular is currently presented;
the bacteria are not a negative factor in our lives but are very helpful,
and frankly we can't survive without them.
Bacteria in general and the Human Microbiome specifically,
are the hottest topics in science and in health today.
The message of the bacteria and their vast importance should be widely spread.
The book was published in Israel two months ago and the first edition is almost sold out.
The book is a candidate for the Ben-Yitzhak Award for the Illustration of a Children’s Book.
