About the Author:

Paul Showers wrote twenty books for the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, including favorites such as What Happens to a Hamburger? and Where Does the Garbage Go? Mr. Showers worked on the Detroit Free Press, the New York Herald Tribune, and for thirty years, the Sunday New York Times.

Paul Showers has written more than twenty Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science Books, including A Drop of Blood, illustrated by Don Madden, and Ears Are for Hearing, illustrated by Holly Keller. He lives in Palo Alto, CA.

Kathleen Kuchera lives in New York, NY. This is her first book for children.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- New illustrations and some careful text revision have given this 1965 basic introduction to the skin and its functions a much needed update. From the cover, which now features several children frolicking in the water rather than a rear view of three shirtless boys, to the highly appealing page layouts, this book proves far superior to its predecessor. A token girl has been added to the cast of main characters, although she is still outnumbered, three to one. The four take turns presenting different aspects of the skin, such as pigment and melanin, cuts and healing, fingerprints, and the sense of touch. Ink-and-watercolor illustrations are lively and vibrant, in direct contrast to the former black, white, and gold drawings. Changes in the text are minimal. More significant is the way in which it has been rearranged. Passages have been moved, regrouped, and elaborated upon, improving the flow of the story line. Page setup has gone from lines of sentences to paragraphs, resulting in a more readable style. The book should be given strong consideration as either a new or replacement copy.
