Summary, etc.:
Many people know the dangers of coming in contact with different types of bacteria, but what they may not be familiar with are the good types of bacteria. This accessible text explains the various types of good and bad bacteria and their value to different ecosystems. Readers will deepen their understanding of these organisms after seeing what they look like under a microscope.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 April #1
    With its mix of microscopically close-up photos, stock images, and chipper cartoon illustrations, this entry in the Under the Microscope series (4 titles) seeks to provide kids with a base-level understanding of bacteria while dispelling rumors or fears they may have about the subject. The introductory two-page chapters explain what bacteria are and the tools scientists use to study them; the following pages zoom in (literally) on types of bacteria, where they can be found, and when they are harmful instead of helpful. Two cartoon bacteria characters appear on every page, offering additional facts in speech bubbles; vocabulary words, indicated in-text and often accompanied by pronunciation guides, are defined in a final glossary. Brightly and accessibly designed, this resource helps to distill a more complex science topic for newer readers. Grades 2-5. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
