Does anybody know of any good books/references/guides for the common
not so common) life forms found in the garden and compost piles? I have
slow and a fast compost pile and the number of life forms in the slow
is astounding, and I think it would be quite a fun 'get to know the
around you' thing for kids (and me) to identify some of them and
what they do, their life cycles etc.

All of the suggestions you have received are good ones.  Also the USDA
National Resources Conservation Service publishes an excellent well
illustrated booklet entitled "Soil Biology Primer" written by Elaine
Ingham, Andy Moldenke, and Clive Edwards.  The first printing was free
but I believe there is now a charge.  Well worth the money.

Good luck in the bins,
