Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Full page photographs of children illustrate this early reader. With a table of contents, a glossary, an index, and a resource page, the book is a good introduction to information books. The text uses simple declarative sentences to talk about skin, such as "I use my skin to touch." There are four different children photographed in various settings to illustrate the concepts discussed. The book ambitiously introduces the idea that skin is an organ, connected by nerves to the brain, though the photographs simply show children petting a cat. More successful is the section on caring for skin, showing what children can do to keep their skin healthy. Here the photos and the text clearly work together to help children make meaning. The book would be a good conversation-starter with young children. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
—Diane Carver Sekeres, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-These simple books will be useful in classrooms to help educate youngsters about personal health and hygiene. The large, colorful photographs of young children accompany brief, first-person texts, presented in bold, black font against pastel pages. While the oversized format lends these books to group sharing, some children may be able to read them on their own.-Christine E. Carr, Lester C.
