Children's Literature - Beverly Melasi
The human body is an amazing machine, made up of many different parts. It is controlled by the brain, which is like a powerful computer. Messages between the brain and the rest of the body travel along nerves. The brain sorts information at high speed and sends messages to the rest of the body. The body is fueled by food and water. It needs exercise and rest to keep running at optimal speed. Skin is the largest part of the body and covers almost 21.5 square feet. Nerves live beneath the skin and send information to the brain at the slightest touch. Skin is like body armor that protects the heart and all the other important organs from bumps, falls, and germs. Teeth are the only part of the body that cannot repair themselves. They should be brushed twice a day to keep them healthy. Muscles work in pairs, because they can only pull in one direction. Joints connect the bones so the body can bend. This analogy of the human body was very well written. There are fun facts and answers to questions most kids would wonder about, like: Why do people blink? Why do they sneeze? Why do we have two eyes? Why do stomachs rumble? How do people grow? The artwork is superb, and very colorful. Reviewer: Beverly Melasi
