Meet marvellous microbes by winning The Good Germ Hotel

We're giving away three copies of this brilliant introduction to the bacteria living in our bodies.

The front cover of The Good Germ Hotel

Our bodies are absolutely full of bacteria and germs... but that's not always such a bad thing!

In The Good Germ Hotel, children can learn all about the good microbes living in our body, from the ones that fight viruses to those that digest food.

Kim Sung-hwa and Kwon Soo-jin's book - illustrated by Kim Ryung-eon - is full of surprising details about gut health and immunity, with lots of quirky pictures to enjoy.

It's a helpful reminder to children that not all germs are bad, especially as ideas about staying healthy are the subject of lots of conversations at the moment.

We have three copies of The Good Germ Hotel to give away! If you fancy winning one, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Tuesday, 4 May. Good luck!
