9781406341041: Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes

This exciting non-fiction picture book introduces young readers to the wondrous (and invisible) world of microbes.There are living things so tiny millions could fit on a dot. Although they are invisible, they are everywhere and they multiply very quickly. They are vital for life on earth, and do all sorts of things - from giving us a cold and making yoghurt to wearing down mountains and helping to make the air we breathe. With charming illustrations by Emily Sutton, this friendly, clever book succeeds in conveying the complex science of micro-organisms simply and clearly, and opens up an exciting new avenue for young non-fiction.

Review:

In Tiny, Nicola Davies has created a fascinating and accessible science book for younger children that will be greeted with great delight by teachers. Each turn of the page offers something new and interesting for children to think about -- Marilyn Brocklehurst * Bookseller * Tiny ambitiously takes on microbiology for toddlers, explaining in the simplest terms and illustrations the basics of microbes. You might even learn something yourself * We Love This Book * This gorgeously-presented non-fiction picture book describes itself as 'the first microbiology book for five-year-olds'. Making a complex topic simple and appealing enough for even very young readers to understand, this is a fascinating introduction to the subject of microbes - living things so tiny that millions could fit in a single dot. Children will love exploring each beautifully-laid out page, looking out for the characters who recur on each spread - a boy, a girl and a cat. The perfectly-pitched text by award-winning author Nicola Davies conveys the information in a clear, friendly and accessible way, and Emily Sutton's charming illustrations are a real delight. This is an original, special and memorable book that sets the bar high for illustrated children's non-fiction * Booktrust * Managing to be both informative and engaging, Nicola's enthusiasm and understanding of the subject enables her to convey complex scientific theory in a clear way that children can easily digest. Aided by Emily's explanatory diagrams and images, this is perhaps the first and only microbiology book for five-year-olds, which is a very fine accolade indeed * Junior, Book of the Month * A linear story that describes in beautifully simple language the science of microbiology . . . Sutton's drawings are both elegant and informative, getting science across to the youngest readers. . . stands out for doing something different in this field -- Lorna Bradbury * The Telegraph * Never let it be said that education books are dull! Beautifully depicted in easy to understand images and descriptions. A great way to encourage little ones to learn * Babybuzz * Reveals the miraculous-ness of science with sheer sharp edge precision and decorative charm -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * An absolute visual delight. This charming and beautiful book eloquently describes the forms, functions and rapid reproduction of the `invisible transformers of our world' * The Publisher's Association's Best New Children's Books Summer 2014, The Guardian * An enchanting book . . . [the] prose is imaginative and lucid and glorious illustrations awaken a sense of wonder. It's a great gift for any child who neglects to wash - and for hygiene-obsessed parents -- The Oldie Magazine * Amanda Craig * A star book for young children . . . arresting and interesting illustrations work perfectly with the text, bringing things to a practical level * Books for Keeps * A richly beautiful examination of life on the tiniest scale * Metro * With charming illustrations by Emily Sutton, this friendly, clever book succeeds in conveying the complex science of micro-organisms simply and clearly and opens up an exciting new adventure for young non-fiction * Green Parent * It's rare to find a science book for tiddlers, never mind one with such a fine aesthetic sensibility -- Alex O'Connell * The Times * This breath taking and magical science book is one I would give to almost anyone . . . with its spellbinding Judith Kerr-like illustrations it has a bedtime story feel * The Glasgow Herald * A much needed science book for the early years. * Nursery World * I really recommend this book - informative, with excellent, fun illustrations on beautiful paper. * Juno * Ideal for reading with younger children. * The School Librarian * Nicola Davies imparts a sense of wonder at the variety and abundance of near-invisible life forms * Wall Street Journal Europe * Exploring the wonders of microbes, this book is a great big, super-small wow. From grinning whale down to mini ant and beyond, readers are hurled into a world of scale and numbers. Tiny does a glorious job of depicting the undepictable with carefully chosen statistics and magnificent illustrations in earthy greens and browns. The sequence showing microbe multiplication will blow minds and smack gobs. And to read that the smallest workers are doing the biggest jobs - well, that can't but delight young wonder-struck readers. * Children's Books Ireland Recommended Read * They turn a learning experience into a delightful picture book * Carousel * A large, exciting picture book . . . will inspire children's curiosity * Books for Keeps *
