I was inspired to recreate a classic kids book into a story that has some common microbes in it instead. I used the story I read to my daughter everyday, “Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you see?” and made it into “Microbe, Microbe, What do you see?” instead. I test read the story to my two year old and although she had no idea how to say the names, she was interested in hearing me tell the story! I included some fun facts about each microbe on the back of each page in order to tie in my knowledge of microbiology into my story.
I used plywood for the pages to mimic the cardboard books that my kid reads. I wrote and drew the pages with paint markers and in some cases let my kid help color in the microbes!
Hope you enjoy!
Hi everyone! My name is Rachel Alexander and I am half way through my Junior year working on a degree in Biology with a concentration in cellular and molecular biology. I am currently working in a lab on campus participating in a project looking at DNA repair in cells after radiation treatments. I love being outdoors and spending time with my family! I am looking forward to learning more about microbes and the possibilities they hold.
