Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
There is a lot to learn at Henry's extraordinary house. Henry is a young boy who explains that anything can happen at his house and it usually does. Henry and his dog, Mothball, enjoy finding out about new things. In cartoon illustrations, Henry introduces Jaggers, the caretaker, who leads Henry throughout the house, explaining all the happenings. Henry sees a skeleton and finds out that it is Dr. X Ray's assistant, Bones. The names of the various bones are labeled, and several facts are given about the longest and shortest bones. This leads on to another character who lifts weights, and facts are given about muscles. Henry discovers more facts about skin, noses, and tongues. Jaggers tells Henry how our lungs pass oxygen into our blood, and how our heart pumps it around our body. Henry learns about the different kinds of blood cells and platelets. He discovers how our ears work, how we speak with our voice box, and how we eat and swallow. When Henry learns about eyes, there are several illustrations to show illusions and how they happen. There are simple descriptions of how the brain works, and how bodies change as people grow older. A few pages are filled with ideas for Henry to stay fit and healthy, like getting fresh air and exercise. A double-page spread has a diagram of a skeleton of the human body with labels for each part of the body. A little humor is thrown in as it also shows the skeleton holding a peanut butter sandwich with a blob of peanut butter on the floor. This age group of readers will enjoy those little details. A table of contents, a glossary, and an index help to add to the educational value of this entertaining and fact-filled text. The humorous and imaginative illustrations help make all the information fun to learn. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
