A lovely and whimsical little book.

This is recommended with Beautiful Feet's History of Science Through Literature (for homeschoolers).

It is really on about a first grade reading level, with no more than about 8 words on each of its few pages. But, I gave it four stars as it made its main point in an appealing, succinct manner. I find that more is remembered long term with brevity than with much detail. In those big thick college textbooks, the forest is often missed for the trees. This is a 'just the facts, Ma'am' little book.

But, since this book is out of print, if you have difficulty obtaining it, a brief Google search of Leeuwenhoek will do the trick.
