VOYAThis series gives middle school readers a look into the workings of the body. In Introduction to the Human Body, full-color illustrations and easy-to-read text explain anatomy and physiology. Basic vocabulary and information are given on such parts of the body as the circulatory system, heart, and digestive system. Its magazine style, with lots of captions pointing to parts of full-spread illustrations, makes information accessible and interesting to reluctant readers as well as others. The Senses concentrates on the five sensory organs and how they work. Students learn about sight. The anatomical structure of the eye is illustrated and how it contributes to ocular perception is explained. The process used by photoreceptors to perceive color is demonstrated as is how the brain forms recognizable visual representations. Again full-color illustrations and wrap-around text allows all this information to be easily accessible to all readers. Special features such as "Did you know?" and "Interesting Facts" add another dimension to the information included in this volume. Other titles in the series are Human Reproduction and Development and The Brain. All books provide students with curricular-based information in a practical and entertaining way.
