Kudos to Edward Miller for making this book absolutely inviting! The bright colors and excellent design make this a great choice for anyone curious about nature, and especially things you can't see without a microscope. I especially liked the introduction: "How to Be a Mad Scientist in Eight Easy Steps." Step 6 is "Get a Henchman!" The first five chapters deal with DNA, bacteria and simple organisms (protists), dust mites, and worms. The final chapter deals with carnivorous plants -- slightly more difficult to locate than mud and pond water, but still quite interesting! The experiments tend to involve using a microscope, so keep that in mind. There are also directions which occasionally involve some adult supervision. I liked the way the author described the scienctific process, and the concepts behind the experiments. 6th grade and up.
