Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Podlesney
This timely book is a collection of articles originally appearing in the online magazine "Science News for Kids." The forward by Emily Sohn, introduces the reader to the exciting world of science and the challenges it offers through exploration, questioning, curiosity and inspiration. The first section, Diseases and Disorders, includes articles on fighting disease, mad cow disease, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, allergies and interesting research on snoring and its possible affect on grades. Section two, Sports and Exercise Health, covers scrapes and infections that can occur playing sports, fractures, the science of sneaker design, the role of genes in athletics and new research that questions the value of stretching before exercise. The Science of Good Health, section three, reinforces the importance of bone health, shows how good bacteria keep our intestinal tract healthy, and informs us of studies that show sound sleep and caring for others helps us to live longer. The fascinating section four, New Research in Health and Medicine, discusses how electricity works in our body, possible health hazards of microwave radiation from cell phone use, the discovery by Swiss scientists of a new way to promote the re-growth of injured bone, nanomaterials called buckeyballs, the future possibility of planting microchips in the body to deliver medicine and the possible use of a chemical produced by the tapeworm to slow the absorption of medicine. An inspiring article describes how the observations of three teens with separate projects are contributing to insights in medicine. The layout of the book is attractive with soft colors, and several photos. There is aneditor's introduction to each article, study questions throughout the text, references for further study at the end of each article and a glossary. This book is a good introduction to the topics it presents and is designed to whet the reader's appetite for more.
