An “I Can Read” Science Book

Greg’s friend Billy recently got a new microscope. The box also came with some glass slides. Billy can see very tiny things really clearly. He can hairs on a spider’s foot. He can see little hooks in a bird’s feather. Greg wants one too. Greg wants to see tiny things too.

Greg’s father explains that microscopes can be very expensive. But seeing Greg’s enthusiasm, he decides to look for one and finally finds a nice one for Greg. But there are no slides for Greg too see into! So dad asks him to “go find his own tiny things”.

Thus begins Greg’s journey into looking at tiny things under a microscope. This little book  is a wonderful “I Can Read” Level 3 book. This reader is the perfect companion gift if you were considering buying a Microscope. As Greg leans into his microscope, he finds a world of tiny things to discover.

Greg’s enthusiasm and curiosity is addictive. Greg’s mom and dad get excited too and want to take a peek into Greg’s microscope every now and then.  We loved looking at all the wonderful things that Greg could see under his microscope.

I personally loved this book! A reader + science book. The words are simple and the sentences are short. The science “experiments” are also very simple. A pinch of salt, a little dust, even a piece of wool. Under the microscope, these simple things look absolutely fantastic.

Be warned this book is contagious! Once you read it, you simply have to have a microscope! Read “Greg’s Microscope”, you’ll find your little one discovering a completely new world of tiny things!

  1. This looks like a nice book to encourage kids to look at the microscopic world and maybe get into science. I had a microscope when I was young and it was passed on to one of my nieces, who I hope will pass it on someday, too. It was a great learning experience. Thanks for sharing this book with us.

    Thanks for the recommendation. We were thinking about buying a microscope to “play” with during the summer. I will have to keep this book in mind to read when we get the microscope.

    My daughter recently looked in a microscope at school and was thrilled! She had done it when she was younger but didn’t remember it. I might have to go get one — and this book. Thanks for hosting the Kid Lit Blog Hop and have a great weekend!
