Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There are hidden worlds in nature—places you can visit only with a microscope. Dennis Kunkel has been exploring these worlds for more than twenty-five years, and now you can go along with him as he uses his powerful microscopes to reveal the hidden beauty of everyday objects: a crystal of sugar, a grain of pollen, a blade of grass.

For Dennis, science has always been an adventure, the chance to make discoveries and explore new frontiers. Follow Dennis and author Stephen Kramer through Hidden Worlds and youll never see your world the same way again!

Synopsis:

There are hidden worlds in nature—places you can visit only with a microscope. For more than twenty-five years, Dennis Kunkel has been exploring these worlds. Through the lenses of powerful microscopes, he has examined objects most people have never even thought about: a mosquitos foot, a crystal of sugar, a grain of pollen, the delicate hairs on a blade of grass. Hidden Worlds takes you behind the scenes of Denniss work and explains how he captures his remarkable images of microscopic life and objects. Youll learn how Dennis became interested in microscopes as a boy, how he prepares specimens for study, and how different kinds of microscopes work. Youll also have the chance to follow Dennis as he collects in the field—from the ash-covered slopes of Mount St. Helens to the lava tubes, rainforests, and beaches of his home state of Hawaii.

Synopsis:

This ALA Notable Children's Book opens the door to the hidden worlds of nature, as photos taken with powerful microscope reveal the hidden beauty of everyday objects. Full color.
