Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One in the "Speedy Facts" series of books, this 48-page entry book packs a lot of snapshot facts in eleven brief chapters. It appears as a set of snapshots of the human body because the illustrations and the brevity of the text create a photo album design layout. The parts of the body examined are cells, skeleton, muscles, digestion, circulation, respiration, nervous system, the senses and skin. A couple of paragraphs begin each topic and sub-topic, and then speedy facts are placed throughout the page matched to an image. For example, a small photo of a child eating a stack of pancakes is captioned, "The tongue is your most movable muscle." Flip from one fact to another or from page to page. This is an information book that moves swiftly, similar to TV commercials. Illustrations include graphs, drawings, photos, microscopic images and x-ray images. Third and fourth graders will have fun with some of the human body facts; pus, burps and black eyes are part of the varied display. The book will augment a study of our bodies and will serve as a motivator for study. It is especially commendable that the book ends with facts on fitness and nutrition. The final fact tells readers that we eat nearly a half ton of food in a year which is comparable to eating 4,000 quarter-pound hamburgers. This book has kid-appeal. 2004, Scholastic Inc, Ages 6 to 9.
