I'm a biology professor, and I teach microscopy. There are experiments in this book that I didn't even know about. My nephew and I are gonna have soooo much fun. I can't wait to share this with him and work with his new microscope. This is waaaay better than buying kids pointless games. Learning is food for the brain and it's better to start them while they're young.

I'm disappointed that amazon didn't have an educational rating (which they did for neon jelly bracelets I bought, strange) for this book.

I bought this to go with the microscope I purchased for my 11yr old for Christmas. I thumbed through it and I KNOW he's going to have a BLAST with this!

Conceptually this book is OK. I got it for a 10-year-old and he is probably likely to get past any useful information very quickly. The equipment shown and explained is primitive and more on a toy level. I am sending him a high school student-grade scope that has many features not covered. I also purchased another book for him which is a bit more detailed and has Internet information available. Hopefully that will prove to be a more challenging guide.

This book is the perfect compliment to the microcscope that my daughter got for Christmas. It is easily understood by an 8 year old and she was excited to read it along with using her microscope.

A nice add-on to microscope I gave my youngest grandson. This guide explained proper instrument usage and care and contained many fun and educational experiments to help maintain his interest.
