This book gives readers information about our ears and how we hear.
Children's Literature - RevaBeth RussellEars pop because there is a different pressure inside your ears than outside. There is a small connection called the Eustachian tube that connects the inner and outer ear and when air moves between them, you hear a pop. This popping will also make your ears feel better. There is a great illustration of this concept, as there is for every clear explanation in this "Inside My Body" series. Sound is made by something that causes the air to move back and forth. When that air enters your ear canal it causes the eardrum to move and results in you hearing something. Again, there is another great illustration. A photograph of a burst eardrum is included. Loud music can cause hearing loss and or tinnitus, a constant noise in the ear. Ears are important for balance as well as hearing. Many young readers will have had "tubes" put in their ears and will be fascinated with the photograph and explanation. This is a well done book that students will love. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell
