More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
Eyes are complex, yet amazing. The eye has features outside protecting it and essential parts inside enabling vision. The reader will enjoy learning that the squid has very good eye sight and that the cat family has an extra reflective layer behind their retinas to capture light, causing their eyes to glow in the dark. The reader can even do a fast colorblind test. The eyes of chameleons and fruit flies are described so the reader learns how having two eyes gives one depth perception. Nearsighted means you can see more clearly near and farsighted means you can focus better on distant objects. This concept, as in all of the books in "Inside My Body" series, is clarified with a photograph of what having each type of vision would be like. The reader will also learn ways to take care of their eyes, such as wearing ski goggles to protect your eyes from the sun's glare. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell
