Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The answer to the title's question is that a hamburger¾and all other foods eaten¾are digested. This nonfiction picture book explains the digestive system processes. Newly illustrated from previously written text in the publisher's "Let's Read-and-Find-Out" science series, the book is informative and useful to the young reader interested in the study of the human body. The illustrations are cartoon-like and diagram, without distraction, the inside workings of digestion. Photo sidebars with microscopic images of the actual insides of the stomach and intestines support the intent of the pictures. Two useful science activities are described at the end of the book, appropriate for primary grade students. 2001 (orig. 1985), HarperCollins, $4.95. Ages 5 to 9. Reviewer:Jacki Vawter
