Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Send report writers investigating the human body to this fine volume. It include one- or two-person experiments that help youngsters investigate and understand how their bodies function. Detailed captions and lables combine with many full-color photographs to show the inner working of the human body.
Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
This resource uses detailed text, full-color illustrations, diagrams, cutaways, and photographs of anatomical models and microscopic views to present information about the human body. The author provides current information about body organs (brain, heart, skin), systems (circulation, digestion, reproduction) and functions (breathing, eating, growing). Part of the "Eyewitness Science" series.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
DK offers a series of "action packs" that will stimulate children's natural curiosity. Each kit comes with a guidebook and lots of subject related activities. The Human Body includes a press-out 3-D skeletal model and a growth chart. Since many kids learn through hands-on activities, this may be the perfect choice for home or a classroom project. Other titles in the series are Rome, Light & Illusion, Pyramid, Dinosaur, Night Sky, Flight, Castle, Puzzle, and Tutankhamun & Ancient Egypt.
Children's Literature - Wendy Ricci
This special interactive kit includes everything a curious child needs to learn about the major body systems. Included is a model skeleton with assembly instructions, tab cards that show movement of various bones and muscles, a poster, activity cards, and a guidebook with introductory information about each body system. All materials are neatly organized in a box that can be reused for storage.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6Two titles with a slightly different bent. Instead of a straightforward presentation of what exists, Parker poses a series of hypothetical questions such as ``What if the Earth were twice as big?'' and ``What if there were no wind?'' In The Human Body, he asks ``What if we had no skin?'' and ``What if people didn't have sex?'' Explanations are clear and lively (if perhaps given too many exclamation points). Average-quality cartoon illustrations mirror the texts and provide a touch of humor. Given their scattershot approach, the books are better suited to browsing than for report writing. The ``Understanding Science & Nature'' series (Time-Life) gives a bit more coverage in these areas.Susan Chmurynsky, East Kentwood Freshman Campus, MI
Children's Literature - Pat Trattles
Do you know it takes forty-two muscles to frown but only eighteen to smile, or that you use more than 100 muscles to raise your arms? Do you know that the body makes three million new cells every second and that if you joined the body's blood vessels end to end they would stretch twice around the earth? Readers will learn these facts and many others in this title in the "Science Library" series from Mason Crest Publishers. Designed for upper elementary and beginning middle school students, it covers cells, skin, joints, muscles, skeletal, cardiovascular, neural, reproductive and digestive systems, dreaming, sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. In short, if it has anything to do with the human body, it is covered. Each chapter begins with a short introduction to the topic then is supplemented with colorful photographs, diagrams, illustrations, and short boxed paragraphs providing more detailed information. A grid with labeled coordinates forms the background of each page. This grid is used to cross reference information and lead readers to related subjects within the book. For example, readers who want to know more after reading about the inside of the eye on page 26 are referred to page 32 (n15) where they will learn about the vision center in the brain. Each two page spread also contains statistics and interesting facts, amazing trivia, and suggested websites for further information. Complete with a glossary and detailed index, this information packed book is a great addition to the science classroom. Reviewer: Pat Trattles
