My fascination with Antony van Leeuwenhoek started when I picked up my daughter's school book from the coffee table. I wondered...

The short answer? CURIOSITY and PERSEVERANCE

watch these videos to learn his amazing story! 

Watch a clever and informative puppet show by Flora Lichtman and Sharon Shattuck!
