This book is about collecting and looking at specimens - it is not meant to be an instructional book on the mechanics of a microscope.
Throughout the book, there's a good quantity of black-and-white photos of each of these microscopic animals and they were obviously taken with a professional high-powered microscope - so the kids who use this book might be a little disappointed that they can't see these animals with such magnification or clarity - but I suspect that most kids will be perfectly fine with this.
I think this book would be a good buy for a child from about 7 to 11 years old. It should really whet their appetites for using that microscope!
We've seen tardigrades, nematodes, spirogyra and water fleas so far! Many more to come as we get through this book and build our water-world id chops.
