Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- This import from Italy introduces the form and function of the brain. Seven double-page spreads cover physiology, voluntary and involuntary actions, senses, memory, learning, and creativity. Some treatments offer simple explanations of the various workings, while others merely state that these activities are a result of brain function. The gimmick here is the die-cut holes across the bottom of the book that act as a simple index. They are confusing however--the symbols that appear on each tab are not always an obvious indication of the heading for that page--a hand for ``. . . Your Five Senses. . .'' and an eye for ``Your Brain Sends Many Messages!'' The organization of the text is equally confusing. ``Messages'' seems to discuss memory, but relates it to the senses offering a diagram of the tongue and taste, while ``Five Senses'' says ``you also have other senses that pick up changes inside your body, like hunger and thirst, pain and dizziness.'' Die cuts also dominate the center of each right-hand page; a large ``puzzle'' of the brain is formed through overlaying cuts. The puzzle piece for each page features labeled pictures of children performing an activity related to the topic under discussion. The rest of each spread consists of two to three paragraphs of text, several full-color cartoon illustrations and diagrams, and a couple of detailed captions. The result is a hodgepodge of information that must be studied piece by piece rather than taken as a whole. Libraries would do better with Paul Showers's Use Your Brain (HarperCollins, 1971; o.p.) or Joy Richardson's What Happens When You Think? (Gareth Stevens, 1986), both of which offer comparable information in a simpler format. --Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI
