Overview

Prepare yourself for a journey through The Human Body like no other. Kids can discover what we now know about our amazing bodies -- and what we might learn in the future. Or they can follow their own interests! If they want to know how the brain works, they can jump straight to "The Sensing Brain" and move through the book from there. They'll also meet the heroes of human biology and learn about their new tools and treatments.

Reader's Digest Pathfinders combine dynamic, multi-layered visuals with stimulating and accessible text plus easy-to-follow cross-references. The result enables readers to chart their own paths of discovery through a range of high-interest nonfiction subjects. Each path is completely unique, and readers can choose a new path every time they pick up the book.

Superb photographs and vibrant, varied color graphics enliven every page. The lively text, written to stimulate young imaginations, has been checked for accuracy by experts from such institutions as the Smithsonian and the American Museum of Natural History. More than "museum tours in books," these kid-friendly guides offer a true hands-on approach to learning.

Examines the structure and function of various parts of the human body, including skin, hair, muscles, and bones, and describes how the various parts of the brain sense our environment and coordinate our actions.
