Usborne's The World of the Microscope is, in our opinion, a wonderful and colorful introduction to microscopy. Practical, clearly worded and illustrated, it provides numerous experiments and activities that range from simple to more complex.
The book has hundreds of stimulating experiments that can be conducted in the home using everyday items such as onions, corks, bugs and leaves among many other easily obtainable specimens from both land and sea. A plethora of color illustrations are not only educational, but also provide step-by-step guidance on the respective experiments.
As a result, we recommend this book for all new microscopists - regardless of age.
