Editorial Reviews

This 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. (Inside the Human Body). VOYA CODES: 3Q 3P M (Readable without serious defects; Will appeal with pushing; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8). 2006, Chelsea House, 32p.; Index. Illus., PLB $28.. Ages 11 to 14.

The book is part of the "Inside the Human Body" series and covers sight, the eye, perception of colors, the formation of images, hearing, the ear, balance, touch, skin, smell, and taste. The chapters include: "Sight—A Window to the World," "Sight—The Miracle of Vision," "Sight—The World in Color," "Sight—How Images Are Formed," "Hearing and Balance—Capturing Sounds," "Hearing and Balance—Hello—I Hear You," "Hearing and Balance—I'm Not Falling!" "Touch—Recognizing What We Touch," "Smell—That Smells Good!" "Taste—Savor the Flavors," and "Taste—How Sweet It Is!" The subtitle on the back reads, "The senses are powerful systems that let us know what is happening around us, make our daily activities easier, warn us of danger, give us pleasure, and let us stay in contact with the people around us." The illustrations are very clear and well labeled. It is a busy format but everything you need to know on the subject is included here.
