Product Description:

My eight-year-old's first reaction to this book was an emphatic "Cool!" Brilliant color pictures and graphics welcome you to the world of the microscopic. What would a DNA strand look like if magnified 7 million times? How about greatly magnified parts of plants, insects, and the human body? Find out here. Each section shows amazing color pictures of dramatically magnified objects and organisms. For example, the Plant and Fungi chapter shows a greatly enlarged picture of water plants called desmids and diatoms. Instructions are given for collecting pond or lake water so that you can view the microscopic life in a drop of water. Although much of the book depicts and describes the microscopic world, the latter part of the book is devoted to how microscopes work, from a standard lens microscope to the electron- scanning microscope. Pointers are given for buying a microscope and using advanced techniques for preparing various types of slides and mounts. A wonderful resource for any student interested in the "hidden" world around us. - Jerry

We are studying cells at the moment, and after watching single-celled organisms under a microscope on YouTube, he wants a microscope of his own. I'm hoping this will tide him over while we find a microscope.

We purchased the whole NOEO chemistry book collection and were introduced to Usborne science books. They were thoroughly enjoyed.

I chose this book for next year. We homeschool and will be doing a lot of learning with a microscope and think this book would be useful. Plus, I am a Usborne Consultant and LOVE their books.
