K-Gr 2-Large type and full-page color illustrations accompany short, simple texts that introduce and explain the different body systems. These slim titles are designed to support national science standards and the texts introduce subject-specific words that are defined in the glossaries. Illustrations feature photographs of ethnically diverse smiling children, and all except Muscular contain a few uncluttered diagrams with boxed legends or labels that will assist youngsters in grasping the concepts and identifying the parts of the system under consideration. Each volume is small enough for little hands to hold. Although these utilitarian, unimaginative books lack the visual appeal of such volumes as Seymour Simon's Muscles (Morrow, 1998), they may be helpful to newly independent readers ready to move beyond the science "Rookie Reader" series (Children's).-Dona J.
