If you are a mom of two like me whose children are fascinated by the world around us, getting your hands on a variety of books, particularly about microbiology, will be extremely helpful. With those kinds of books, on hand, you will always have an easy reference when your kids ask about microbes or microorganisms that they can study using such tools as the microscope.

Although a top-quality microscope is always a great tool to get for kids, a microbiology book full of information and knowledge about extremely tiny organisms should be a helpful tool for ensuring greater understanding.

These are what I consider great finds in the microbiology section of online sellers.

I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life 1st Edition is also available in Kindle Edition for Android phones, iPad, HDX, iPhone, and more. If you already own the popular science classics such as The Selfish Gene and The Botany of Desire, this should make another great addition to have in your personal library.

This is a wondrously informative as well as a vastly entertaining examination that provides a delightfully microscopic view of the world that presents a reimagined picture of it. The human body along with the various bodies of animals around us serves as home to millions of bacteria and other microscopic organisms.

Ed Yong, who wrote this book, pokes fun at this fact so we can become more aware of how we are all interconnected with each other thanks to the way microbes protect our health, build our bodies and grant us unbelievable powers.

Microbiology: An Introduction (12th Edition) is coauthored by Gerard J. Tortora, Berdell R. Funke, and Christine L. Case. Comprising 960 pages, this hardcover edition is a superb textbook for those planning to major in microbiology.

It includes chapters in the classification of microorganisms, prokaryotes, viruses, viroids and prions, eukaryotes, the principles of disease and epidemiology, among many others. The last two chapters of Part Five are on Environmental Microbiology and Applied and Industrial Microbiology, giving readers plenty to think about on the various applications of microbiology.

Get this piece of scientific work for your child and have all those burning questions on tiny organisms answered easily.

Essential Cell Biology, 4th Edition is co-written by Bruce Alberts; Dennis Bray; Karen Hopkin; Alexander D Johnson; Julian Lewis; Martin Raff; Keith Roberts; and Peter Walter.

The book comes with an easily accessible introduction to the principal concepts of cell biology. The exceptional illustrations will have your young learner scrambling for their microscope to prove if cells look as colorful and intriguing as they do in the book.

This book is clearly written and uses lively language to get the learner excited about the biology of cells and molecules, their structures and other attributes.

There’s easily followed text that will surely engage the beginner microbiologist while molecular detail is reduced, so the reader gets a cohesive conceptual framework for the fundamental science that provides understanding of everything about biology.

If you have children who have unending questions about the science of microbiology, make sure you have at least one of those three books to refer to, okay?
