Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 UpTwo volumes that address the structure and physiology of their respective systems. The texts are succinct but complete, and include plenty of detail without being overwhelming. Skeleton explains the types of muscles and how they work, joint diseases, bones, skeletal diseases and disorders, and more. Reproductive System addresses male and female anatomy, genes, fertility problems, contraception, STDs, and human development from conception to adolescence. Both books are well organized and well written. The full-color photos, diagrams, and illustrations are clear and complement the text. Fact boxes on topics such as DNA, population and numbers of bones in the body give additional information. Good introductions to two complex systems of the human body.Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
