Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book Eyes and Ears by Seymour Simon is about the structure of our ears and eyes. This book goes through the functional processes of ears and eyes. The large font makes it easy to read, but it is not that interesting. I would guess a 5th grade reading level. This book would serve its purpose if we were doing a project on ears and eyes, but other than that I would not choose this book for a read aloud or independent reading. I would definitely chose this book if I were doing a science lesson. The website I attached would be a fun art and craft to enhance our usage of our ears.
