Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-A broad, once-over treatment. Beginning with a look at the structure of the skin and the changes that puberty brings, Hammerslough describes common myths and the importance of good nutrition. Skin types, the special attention each requires, blemishes, acne, dandruff, sunburn, moles, and warts are touched upon, as are good habits. Hands, knees, elbows, feet, plantar warts, freckles, athlete's foot, calluses, corns, and blisters-all are covered at a break-neck pace. The author finishes with some home recipes for skin care products. There is insufficient information here for reports, but the book will be a good introduction for readers wanting general help. Black-and-white and color photographs merely decorate the text, but the writing style is clear and direct. Susan Wallach's Skin Deep (Troll, 1991) covers all this and much more in greater depth. Nelson Lee Novick's Skin Care for Teens (Watts, 1988; o.p.) is a well-developed storehouse of facts with helpful, specific advice for virtually every problem. The Silversteins' Overcoming Acne (Morrow, 1990) examines that particular teen plague.-Joyce Adams Burner, formerly at Spring Hill Middle School, KS
