Although this beautiful book will get a beginner off to an enthusiastic start, I'd hardly call it complete. It shows images from both transmission and reflection microscopy, without going into much detail about the different kinds of illumination. It barely mentions staining, and never gets into dark field vs bright field, phase contrast, polarized light, oil immersion, and other techniques, and never discusses binocular microscopes. But, for a kid who just got a microscope for Christmas, it's hard to imagine a better way to get started.
