Gr. 2^-4. Children doing reports probably won't find enough about any particular body system to satisfy their teachers here, but there's still plenty of information for children curious about how their bodies work. The book's organization is informal and seems keyed to children's interests: there's a chapter on faces, for example; one on skin and hair, and a separate one for each of the senses. The genial text is also interactive, featuring guessing games and simple experiments children can do alone or with their peers. As usual in books from Dorling Kindersley, this one's loaded with excellent photographs and labeled drawings. Although the large double-page spreads are full, they don't look crowded or confusing, and the three plastic overlays at the front of the book are carefully thought out and referred to throughout the text. Even the back endpaper gives kids a reason to linger: it's filled with humorous cartoon drawings that beg a little extra attention. A book for parents and children to share; a book to share with children in the classroom; a book children can peruse on their own. Stephanie ZvirinFrom School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3?An oversized, photo-filled introduction. The text is prefaced by a series of transparencies that show the skeletal, circulatory, digestive, and muscular systems, which allows readers to "look right inside a body and see where each part belongs." Double-page spreads then show each of the major systems and senses. Each topic is introduced by a paragraph that explains the functions of the system, followed by three or four subtopics that offer related information. Text is basic and conversational, and provides an adequate overview of the subject. A variety of accompanying activities are suggested, most tried and true, but a few are unique. Full-color photographs of children complement the drawings, diagrams, and photos of body parts. A visually interesting, balanced presentation.?Denise L.
