Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
This easy and fun book has great information and understandable illustrations for middle school and high school students alike. The information is up-to-date and compelling. Some readers might even decide to memorize the names of the cranial nerves just because they are listed with a mnemonic aid. Many comparisons are given throughout the book. Most people accept that a dog's sense of smell is better than a human's; I now know this because dogs have two billion olfactory receptors compared with a human's forty million. This and the many other comparisons throughout the book allow the reader to attach new learning to what is previously known. The prevention guide against brain injury is great without being preachy. Most of the investigation/activities seem fun and inviting. Because some of the activities require teams to carry out, these would be better in a classroom setting. This book would make an excellent teacher resource, and many of the investigations could be used as formative assessments. As engaging as most of these investigations are, they are not experiments because they lack experimental design. An inquiring mind could read carefully and make some of these investigations into science fair projects. All measurements are given in both metric and standard units. The glossary is complete, although it could benefit from a pronunciation guide. Words such as amygdala probably are not heard very often and might cause some difficulty. That said, this book should be on every health and life science teacher's shelves.
