Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
What you see when you look through a microscope is very different that what you see with your eyes alone. With a microscope, you can look at a layer of your skin, a grain of pollen or the wing of a fly. As microscopes have become more sophisticated, scientists can look at things like the viruses that make us sick and the blood cells that keep us alive. The six chapters present information about the micro-world, the human body, plants and fungi, insects, minerals and history of the microscope. In addition, the Practical Points section includes advice for selecting equipment. An index and glossary are included. 1999 (orig.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-Double-page spreads explore objects and organisms that can be viewed with a microscope. Individual topics, such as "Body Cells" or "Water Plants," are grouped into larger categories including "The Human Body" and "Plants and Fungi." Various kinds of microscopes and microscopy techniques, not always covered in books on this subject, are also discussed, including electron microscopes, scanning tunneling microscopes, acoustic microscopes, and the use of polarizing filters. Insets give instructions and helpful hints on using an optical microscope. Although the text is clearly written, dangling participles and other grammatical errors exist. All pages are lavishly splashed with eye-catching photographs. While the fascinating illustrations are sure to spark students' interest, the fact that most are computer enhanced may lead to disappointment when they are confronted with the typically gray-toned views through a real microscope. Libraries may want to pair this volume with more detailed titles such as Werner Nachtigall's Exploring with the Microscope (Sterling, 1995) or with historical presentations such as Gail Stewart's Microscopes: Bringing the Unseen World into Focus (Lucent, 1992; o.p.).-Stephanie Bianchi, National Science Foundation Library, VA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
