Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
This short informative book is right on target for the elementary reader. New words are explained often with adjacent pronunciation. When students are older they need to learn how to read science text and how to interpret pronunciations, so this book is a great beginning. There is also a glossary that reinforces these words. A young reader will become a walking encyclopedia spouting interesting information all of the time. Some of the photos from the Harvard Medical School are incredible: real cadavers. The young reader will learn that teeth are living tissue, like bone. Each part of the head is given an in depth look such as the nose, the eye, the tongue, and others. The young reader will feel informed and valued as they read about themselves and their bodies in these "Fact Finders" books. I would hope that books such as these are in all elementary libraries. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6–With high-interest fact boxes and headings such as “Bones: Living Armor” (Head) or “The Growler” (Organs), a kid-friendly presentation prevails in these books. Content includes the location, function, and healthy maintenance of the body parts. Head gives a systems overview that includes the brain; Organs skips the brain as well as location information for some of the organs mentioned. The vivid scientific photographs (some apparently from “Body Works” exhibits) and micrographs (which lack magnification information) are a plus for this series. On-page definitions, current further-reading lists, and a webliography maintained at the publisher’s FactHound Web site all add value. Additional.
