Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
How quick are your reactions? How do your fingers sense temperature? How are the senses of taste and smell related? These fascinating questions as well as many others are the foundation for the experiments in this nonfiction, picture book. With an introduction that includes safety rules, the book focuses on the theme of the human body and uses a question-answer format to engage young readers. Each topic includes a list of items needed to conduct the investigation, step-by-step instructions and explanations, fun facts, and full-color photographs and illustrations. A table of contents, index, glossary, and short list of books and Web sites for additional research provide a solid introduction to the components of nonfiction books. With science fair projects being required of children at younger ages, this book will help families and elementary teachers understand the basics of inquiry while engaging the natural curiosity children have about their bodies. This unique book is a great addition to the elementary school library, thematic studies of the human body, and a good resource for rainy day activities. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis
