Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Leis-Newman
Weird but true facts include how tongues have a unique print pattern, how eye mites live on eyelashes, how smelling food produces more saliva, that a sneeze produces air at 100 mph, and that half a person's bones are in their hands and feet. After a table of contents, there are three glossary words listed: digest, oxygen and muscle. Young readers will like the large color pictures and be able to process the odd factoids around human biology. The repeated "it's weird, but it's true" may help reinforce the concepts and increase language processing. There are illustrations highlighting the different types of body systems. However, there is no cohesive theme around biology that makes the text all come together, and there is an overall lack of content for a reference book priced at over $20. However, it does reflect science curriculum standards and is age-appropriate for elementary students. Additional features include a reference and index, but librarians should opt for other human body books geared to six- to eight-year-olds. This is part of the "Weird But True" series from Enslow.
