Grade 3-6-- With this selection of 14 superb science photographs of remarkable quality and clarity, Cobb has captured some of the wonders of nature down to the smallest possible detail. Each photograph is explained through a well-written narrative and a description of how each photograph was made, whether with the use of special lighting, instruments, or timing devices. Special microscopes were used for viewing the minute detail of an insect's eye, for making a micrograph of a protozoan reproducing in pond water, while a falling drop of rain and a falling cat are both captured with the aid of a stroboscope. It's unfortunate that the faint gray san serif typeface may turn readers away from an otherwise fascinating introduction to science and photography. --Carolyn S. Brodie, Kent State University, OH
