Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972648747, Hardcover)Celebrated folksinger/songwriter Christine Lavin uses her wild imagination to bring to life some of Mother Nature's tiniest creatures! Learn how one shy, lonely paramecium finds a partner for the "Amoeba Hop," a spot where one-celled organisms shake a leg, or a pseudopod, – whatever the case may be!
With the heroine being a curious little girl who came upon a lively puddle of water, the book may be insrtumental in getting young girls interested in science. Both AWSEM (Advocates for Women in Science, Engineering and Mathematics) and the Society of Protozoologists have praised the song "Amoeba Hop."
Ms. Lavin's lyrics are well matched in their wit by illustrator Betsy Franco Feeney's lush oil paintings. Never before has the rich universe of protozoans been depicted with such imaginative artistry.
A non-fictional appendix written by Ms. Feeney includes scientific facts and photographs collected from microphotograhers and scientists around the world. There is even a "How To" section on finding your own protozoans.
With enthusiastic support and advice from the Society of Protozoologists, 'Amoeba Hop' will enhance the bookshelf of all budding scientists...or anyone curious about the world at large (or, we should say, at small).
