“A Delightful Book”

By Mark Farmer, scientist

“Christine Lavin's imagination is nicely matched by that of Betsy Feeney and together they bring the magical world of microscopic creatures to life. Many students (and adults for that matter) go through their entire lives without ever seeing the amazing world of protists. Through this fanciful book that world is brought to them in pictures, words, and song (it comes with a CD!). What is more is that science facts are presented in the back completing the link from imagination to reality and teaching kids biology in the process. If you have any interest in science you will LOVE it!”

“Folksinger and songwrtier Christine Lavin turns her song Amoeba Hop into an illustrated book, telling of a young girl who looks at a muddy puddle and discovers lively invertebrates within its depths. Add charming paintings by Betsy Feeney with photos taken through a light microscope to accompany the whimsical drawings and you have a well-rounded blend of science and adventure.”
