About the Author:

A former elementary school teacher, Jennifer Boothroyd has written many children's nonfiction books including States of Matter; Lou Gehrig: A Life of Dedication; and Roald Dahl: A Life of the Imagination. She lives with her family in Chaska, MN.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–This series describes the senses as tools that can help readers learn about the world and protect themselves from danger. How each sense works and examples and variations of the information it provides are presented in short chapters. A concluding activity demonstrates the sense in action. Readers will be drawn into these books by questions in the narrative and a first-person perspective (from Hearing, Emotions and sounds are closely connected. What sounds make you happy?). There are some errors and omissions. In Hearing, some phrasing (High sounds are produced when sound waves move quickly, for example) may cause misunderstandings about the mechanics of sound. Sight does not mention color blindness, though it covers near- and farsightedness, and Smell mistakenly blames the tears caused by onions on their odor. As in the series above, Taste adds umami to the usual four flavors that can be distinguished by humans. Overall, given their simple sentences, colorful layout, full-page photos, and well-chosen diagrams, these books will be useful for reports. END
