Activities for exploring the miniature world of nature using a hand lens.

From Publishers Weekly:

The subject of this ingenious package is similar to that of Magnification (see above), but the approach here is hands-on, with a 5x lens included with the book. Using humorous language and oddball perspectives, expressing childlike curiosity, Ross explains how to operate a hand lens and thus enter a "miniature realm, where a pebble can look like the moon." Nearly 60 different lessons lead to eye-popping observations: bird feathers are zippers, dragonfly wings are stained-glass windows, wild seeds are shaped like kayaks (he explains why), a dustball contains elements from other galaxies. Humans tapping maple trees seem mundane compared with amazing aphids stealing sap from plants. Lens-wielding sleuths will appreciate activity suggestions, for example, read the "secret messages" for bees inside flowers, goggle at slime and mucous, examine the rings of a worm's body, inspect pollen pillows and flower condominiums. Ross ably balances fun facts with probing questions. Of interest to science lovers as well as those who snooze through textbook science, this book is a source of entertainment and reference that could keep some enthusiasts busy for years. Its sturdy construction ensures a long, durable life. Ages 7-up.
