Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The inexhaustible wonders of the body fascinate scientists, philosophers, and, of course, children. Alive: The Living, Breathing Human Body Book takes young readers on an incredible voyage of our inner workings, from our hair and cranial cavities to the tips of our toes and the soles of our feet. Once again, the DK editors have outdone themselves: The book contains numerous interactive features, including pop-ups, flaps, sound chips, acetate, pull-tabs, and fiber optics to bring this very immediate topic home.
School Library Journal

Gr 5-7- The most riveting pop-up tour of human anatomy since Jonathan Miller's classic Human Body (Viking, 1983; o.p.) kicks off with two glitzy special effects-a cutaway brain with a push-button cascade of sparkles on the cover, then the sound of a beating heart triggered by fully opening the first spread-and goes on for a seven-spread survey of the body's systems and cell biology. Labels, captions, and blocks of text in various sizes and weights have been tucked into every available niche around digitally generated images of (clothed) bodies, body parts, and schematic views, along with occasional small color photos, several acetate overlays, and pop-ups of the chest cavity, a skull, and the digestive system. Smaller flaps lift to show, for instance, closed and open vocal cords. The pages look crowded but not jumbled, and corresponding verbal and visual information is clearly linked. There are some omissions, for instance the fifth kind of taste, "umami," but in general the basics are covered-and in dramatic ways that are certain to compel young readers to find out more. A sure thing for display, for casual browsing, and to crank science units up a notch.-John Peters, New York Public Library

    Educational, detailed, and easy to understand.

    The book taught me everything about the body, and was easy to understand. The pictures were very detailed.

    This book was bought by my mom for my 9 year old sister. I am a highschool student taking AP Biology, however, I use it more than she does. <BR/>I find this book very helpful. I use it to tie my lessons together with the human body. The pictures are great, and the captions are educational and easy to understand.<BR/>You should purchase this book if your child wants to know about the body, and definetly take a look if you aren't exactly sure how the body works.

    I bought this book for my 9 year old for Christmas. He saw it in the store a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. It is a good book for children with curious minds that love to learn and explore. The brain lights up and the heart beats and it has great 3-D models.
