Bye-Bye Germs includes fact boxes to inform both children and parents/carers of the science behind the story. De Montfort University's Dr. Katie Laird (microbiologist) and Professor Sarah Younie (educationalist) have teamed up with author/illustrator Jules Marriner and put together a brand new entertaining, educational book to help keep everyone safe, including:

Top tips for parents on how to prevent spreading viruses at home.
A picture guide on how to wash your hands properly.
A 'Spot the Germs' illustration to help children identify where viruses can be contracted.

Bye-Bye Germs is part of a 'A Germ's Journey' series. More activities and information can be found on www.germsjourney.com.

About The Author
-

Dr Katie Laird’s research is centred on the prevention of transmission of Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) particularly on textiles and the development of novel antimicrobials as alternatives to current disinfectants and antibiotics. Katie also has two young children and appreciates the importance of children learning about health and hygiene from a young age, thus A Germ’s Journey was created.

Dr Sarah Younie is widely published and is the editor-in-chief of Technology, Pedagogy and Education. Her primary research interest is in translational research in education - how research can be applied. Having learnt of Dr Laird’s research in microbiology, Dr Younie was very keen to translate this into practice for teachers and parents.

Jules Marriner writes and illustrates picture books for children. Working from her hobbit hole studio on the Isle of Wight, she is inspired by the forest, the sea and the creatures that live in them. Visit www.julesmarrinerbooks.com.
