This chapter book biography on Anton Van Leeuwenhoek, the first man to see microscopic life, is a nice addition to any middle/high school library or classroom.

This book makes me think about all the microscope I've seen and how I have never thought how it was made and what was inside. So I was kind of surprised.But I also wondered how some scientists couldn't find out something for over 50 years! Wouldn't you think that's strange? Well I would because 50 years is a lot for something that scientists could easily find.I wonder how old microscopes could find the bacteria but some couldn't. Or I wonder if some scientists are doing it wrong because microsco [...]
