Editorial Reviews

Abby McGanney Nolan
This body book does not go deep (it's about skin, after all), but Becky Baines's introductory lesson gets the terms and attitude just right for the younger set.
—The Washington Post
Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Sharp, clear photographs blend seamlessly with the text to provide an excellent introduction to learning about skin. Young readers will discover the many amazing properties of the skin that holds our bodies together. These include how skin heals, grows, protects, and keeps your body comfortable. The last two pages of the book present questions and activities that should lead youngsters into further exploration. Hopefully, as the book jacket states; "Curiosity will take over and you will follow the zigzag path to learn new facts that interest YOU, about skin, about the human body, about, well everything!" This title belongs on the first-purchase list for collections, as it is a fine addition to the science curriculum for young children. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth

K-Gr 2

These books present factual, clearly-written information on their featured subjects. Readers' curiosity will be piqued by the vibrant color photographs, accommodating illustrations, large font size, and helpful captions. Special features include drawings superimposed over photographs, and a "zigzag" path at the end of each book prompting readers to further explore the topic in new and fun ways, such as building a bear den, imagining what Earth would look like from Venus, explaining what could be done with a trunk instead of a nose, and coloring fingertips with markers to examine a colored fingerprint. This series will be a welcome addition in libraries that do not have "The Space Explorer," "Nature's Patterns," "Look After Yourself," "Zoo Animals," and "Creature Comparisons" series (all Heinemann). These new treatments should draw diverse readers and support elementary curricula.-Cara Moffett, Freelance Reviewer
