Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tina Dybvik
This title has a broader focus than others in the "How's Your Health" series, since background information about both blood and bones is necessary to ensure readers' understanding. A table of contents poses eleven short questions about the different stages of wounds and healing, and the contents of each chapter provide answers. Colorful text blocks expand the facts presented and content-specific vocabulary terms appear in bold throughout the book. Realistic photos show young adults and children in various stages of physical distress. Straightforward illustrations support ideas about anatomy, with human hearts and skeletons presented in a cartoon-style. The book emphasizes safety and first aid. It also provides some discussion about what to expect at the doctor's office. The final sections include a glossary and an index with information about to Internet sites for students who want to learn more. Overall, this is a useful guide to familiar playground injuries. Even the cover of this practical resource is black and blue. Reviewer: Tina Dybvik
