Tardigrdes are microscopic invertebrate creatures called "water bears" because they like to live in water, and move on six stubby little legs that makes them look like lumbering bears. They are also among the first invertebrates to travel with astronauts outside the earth's atmosphere. In this book Mike tells us not only what tardigrades are, but where they live, what they eat and what eats them, and how to find, capture and view them under the microscope. He also has sections telling you how to use a microscope and set it up to take photographs and digital images with it. In this small book there is even information about doing tardigrade research, and how to find more information about them. The style of writing is simple, friendly, and humorous, and appeals to all reader age groups.
Mike also has a tardigrade website [...]), which is as remarkable as the book. You can use a link there to watch a video of Mike talking about water bears and tardigrades in space. Besides being a bargain and full of useful information, this book is a visual and verbal delight. I highly recommend it!
I recommend this book most highly on my blog, covering Minnesota science standard enrichment activities:
