Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
This book is part of the "Inside the Human Body" series and covers the central nervous system, the functions of the brain, the senses, control of movements, righties and lefties, the dominant brain, reflexes, the autonomic nervous system, intelligence, and memory. The subtitle on the back cover states, "Our nervous system, and particularly our brain, gives us amazing abilities that help us understand what's happening around us, solve problems, experience emotions, and remember the people, places, and events that shape our lives. Learn more about the nervous system—how it works, how to keep it healthy, and how it can reach its full potential." The Table of Contents gives us more subject titles—"The Central Nervous System," "Cerebral Areas," "Sensory Pathways," "Sensory Area of the Brain," "Central Motor Area," "Motor Pathways," "Laterality," "Cranial Pairs," and "The Automatic Nervous System." There is also a "Did You Know? Interesting Facts" index. Unfortunately, the book is somewhat confusing with all of these divisional titles and topics. However, the illustrations should be very clear and helpful to children. They are labeled and titled and arranged well even though the pages are "busy."
