Great Microscope For Kids Dec 30, 2009
My 7 yr old loves this microscope. He can easily use it on his own. Really encourages science. Now our whole house is his lab!
Microscope handbook Nov 30, 2009
If you're just beginning study with a microscope, you will find this very basic book, very helpful.
Children's Guide Sep 30, 2009
Conceptually this book is OK. I got it for a 10-year-old and he is probably likely to get past any useful information very quickly. The equipment shown and explained is primitive and more on a toy level. I am sending him a high school student-grade scope that has many features not covered. I also purchased another book for him which is a bit more detailed and has Internet information available. Hopefully that will prove to be a more challenging guide.
