And we have a finalist!

The finalists in the AAAS/Subaru SB&F prizes competition have been announced - and among them is Inside Your Insides: A Guide to the Microbes That Call You Home (Kids Can Press, 2016)! It's one of five books (including two Canadian books) in the Middle Grade Science Book category. The full article about the 18 books on the final listing is available for download here.

In describing Inside Your Insides, the prize committee wrote: "In this book, Eamer introduces kids to their microbiomes, which are usually full of beneficial microbes and inside everyone. Eamer does a great job simplifying the topic and incorporating attention-grabbing jokes that will bring laughter to children."

The prize winners will be announced in January, and the prizes will be presented at the 2018 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Austin, Texas, February 15-19.
