Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Sulock
In this book, a part of the "My Body" series, Lindeen explains the basics about muscles in a three part, first person narrative. The first section, "My Many Muscles," defines what muscles are and how they help people move. The second section, "On the Inside," covers how muscles work. It includes an introduction to the heart and offers illustrations of the muscles discussed. Lastly, "My Muscles and My Body" unite the two concepts, allowing children to understand the power of movement. The pages contain full-page photographs of kids in actions, while the illustrations introduce where muscles are found. The text is designed to help readers grasp new concepts and subject-specific vocabulary, such as: active, relax, tendon, tighten, and tissue, which are defined in the "Glossary." Also included are a "Read More" section, a brief list of books related to muscles, and an explanation of where readers can find more information on the Internet. With short sentences and large bold type, the book is a solid choice for young readers learning about anatomy.
