The Senses series takes a perennial classroom subject and gives it a refreshing overhaul courtesy of blunt explanations, strong sidebar factoids, and an appealing photo-heavy design. Each title begins with a diagram of a boy’s face labeled with the various sensory inputs. To its credit, the series does not nail itself to a rigid formula, instead approaching each of the five senses in an individual way. Sight describes how the lens of an eye “makes a picture” from shined light and sends that message to the brain. Also on the informational menu: glasses, blindness, eyelashes, and more. All books feature simple inner-body diagrams and full-bleed, often canted photos with attractive drawn-on borders. This is a series that fulfills its mission admirably. Grades K-2. --Daniel Kraus
