I hope more people discover this book. I had already read a number of websites and articles by scientists, but I wanted to have one source that told everything in one place. Lisa Yount has it all -- everything I needed and everything that this age group would need to know about this remarkable scientist, and she writes about him in an informative, engaging style. She also has the correct facts, unlike many blogs and websites, especially ones who claim that van Leeuwenhoek invented the microscope, which he didn't. Lisa Yount is careful to tell us that he didn't and then tells us who probably did. But most importantly, she includes the big ideas: people didn't know that microbes existed, Van Leeuwenhoek was the first to see many different kinds of things, including protists (protozoa and algae) and bacteria, people were astounded to find out that we had these microbes inside of us, etc.
