Science book review Book: Brain Surgery For Beginners, and Other Major Operations For Minors Author: Steve Parker Illustrator: David West Publisher: Scholastic inc. A delighting book of the amazing brain. This book is filled with interesting facts such as that the left side of your brain controls the right side of your body and vice-versa. To go along with these amazing facts are detailed, comical, colorful pictures. And cute helpful items such as the Brainy Says, which points out what section of the brain the book is looking at. From the thing that has the most knowledge about the brain: The Brain. With a step by step history of the brain and the great minds that studied them in the beginning. To a 19 word, detailed glossary that will suit your every need, ( as if the book did not already explain enough.) There wasn¿t any part of the brain Steve Parker didn¿t miss.
