From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-In his instantly recognizable style, Simon addresses the anatomy and function of bones and muscles. Describing bones as being like "the framework of a building," he emphasizes that they are living parts of the body, protecting organs and manufacturing blood cells and platelets. Explanations of joints, fractures, and arthritis are also included. In Muscles, the three kinds of muscle and their functions are discussed. In addition, the effect of exercise and diagnosing injuries are covered. In both books, the full-paged illustrations are great and include full-color photographs, MRI scans, X rays, and excellent drawings. Two more outstanding additions to Simon's resume.
