Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
This book explores a number of unresolved questions about the human brain. Readers learn that the brain is divided into parts, uses pulses of electricity to work, and is not completely understood. There is also a lot of interesting information to be discovered, such as can we transplant a brain? As with others in this series there are sidebars of "History or Science Explained" and "Amazing!" factoids that the reader will find interesting. Each page starts with a question that draws in the reader to seek more information. This is the type of book that should be in the classroom for students who are eager to learn more about human anatomy. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell
