Editorial Reviews

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.
Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
The human body is amazing! We have 30,000 to 40,000 tiny pieces of skin sloughing off each day and still it is our largest organ. Skin and muscles are large organs that keep us alive and moving. This book is simple in design and explanation, making the introduction to reading factual material as the student grows older much easier. The reading of this book is smooth and enjoyable; common understood words such as poop and pee are used. "When your respiratory system gets wacky you get the hiccups" or if your liver stopped working you would die in about 24 hours." Simple and clear writing is evident throughout the book. This book ties the work of the organs into the team work it is, like firefighters and the police. Each organ is part of an larger system. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell
