Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for any Aspiring Micro/Molecular-Biologist While a little outdated, this book is a great step into the fundamentals of microbiology. The pictures are very nicely labelled, and each colouring page has an accompanying page with a lovely description of the topic at hand. There are many topics covered in the book, including but not limited to the basic animal cell, the process of alcohol brewing, and immune response. Overall a great gift for any microbiology enthusiast and fun for all ages!
