Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Aspects of human anatomy and physiology are explored in this interactive book from the "Science Alive!" series. Topics include eyes and ears, taste and smell, touch and feel, the digestive system, the nervous system, and the heart and lungs. Each chapter begins with a series of experiments that encourage readers to learn through practice; these are followed by explanations of the scientific concepts demonstrated in the experiments. For example, readers learn about the eardrum by making a "drum" and demonstrating the effect of noise on it, then read an article about hearing. They perform an experiment using a simple ruler and small "weights," then read an article about balance. Experiments are graded on their level of difficulty; some experiments recommend adult assistance. 2003, Crabtree,
