Children's Literature
The sense of sight is explained in this installment from "A True Book" series. Chapter One, "See for Yourself," describes how the eye refracts light and sends nerve impulses to the brain. Chapter Two, "Your Eyes at Work," explores the interior workings of the different parts of the eye. Chapter Three, "It's Really the Retina," details how the retina works and also explains color blindness. Chapter Four, "When the Eyes Can't See," describes various problems that people have with their eyes, such as blindness, astigmatism, and presbyopia, and how some of these problems are corrected with lenses. Chapter Five, "Take Care of Your Eyes," lists things that people can do to ensure that their sight stays good throughout the years. A few single page blurbs about blind spots, ophthalmologists, and other facts about sight round out the text of the book. Glossy photos and diagrams of the eye provide lots of visual interest. This book would be a good addition to any health or science class, and would be good reading in an eye doctor's office. 2003, Scholastic,
