My grandson loves things that are small...??

Dear Circ,

My grandson thinks science is pretty cool (his words, not mine). He loves things that are small. He likes to imagine all the living things surrounding us. He said to me "Grandpa, just imagine all the life, all around us, all the time. It's just amazing!" Do you have a science kit for us? I think it would be great for him to show me all the things he's thinking about.

Dear Mike,

We do have a great kit for you, with a real microscope you can use to look at all those teeming organisms. It comes with some prepared slides and with some blanks, so you can look at other things, like pond water, yogurt, or onion skins. You and your grandson will have a great time looking and learning together!
