Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2–New readers will have no trouble grasping the plainly presented concepts in these above-average primers. Captioned by one or two short declarative sentences that are slightly rewritten for each volume (“You use your ears to hear sound”; “You use your eyes to see”), a series of clear color photos depict a multicultural cast of a range of ages demonstrating each of the standard senses. Along with being exposed to some new vocabulary (“nostril,” “umami”), children will come away more conscious of their senses, the role of the brain in interpreting sensory input—and also (without the words “blind” and “deaf” being used) that some people lack certain abilities. Each volume closes with a simple quiz and activity notes for adults.
