Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The human body is the one topic that none of us can ignore. This impressive book-and-DVD package functions as an essential home reference for the entire family. The Human Body covers every aspect of the body's anatomy and function with trademark DK full-color clarity. Both parents and children will be captivated by the stunning photo-realism of the book's 900-plus labeled and captioned diagrams, which cover cells, organs, the muscular system, the skeleton, the brain, and much more. An interactive DVD contains vivid animated body processes, lending a Fantastic Voyage dimension to the experience. A valuable addition to any home library.
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.

    Book Used to Teach High School

    Outstanding overview of human anatomy; magnificent pictures, using computer graphics; interesting little ditties on historical oddities and beliefs about the body. Overall, a well done work.
