Gr. 4-6. Books in the Science News for Kids series collect articles from the youth-oriented Web site of the same name. In this title, suitable for health and science curriculum, the focus is on food and how nutrients affect the body. The chapters are divided into short paragraphs that clearly present scientific and lifestyle concepts. The match between text and images, however, isn't always successful. A discussion of the food pyramid, for example, isn't paired with the graphic of the pyramid itself, which shows up in a too-small reproduction in a later chapter. Also, charts indicating the healthy body mass index for children are left for an appendix, where they aren't fully explained. The range of topics, though, makes this a timely, useful starting point for report writing and classroom discussion, and browsers may be pulled in by the concluding sections about how favorite foods such as chocolate, cheese, and French fries are made. A glossary and short list of resources close. Additional series entries include The Environment, Health and Medicine, and Space and Astronomy. Gillian Engberg
