Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This pop-up book is a cartoony guide to the circulatory and respiratory systems with plenty of boogers, blood and germs—as well as tabs, levers and flaps that provide pertinent information about the body. A giant proboscis invites readers to Pick Open! panels, which reveal factual tidbits about the functions of the nose; a stream of snot that readers can pull out of a nostril offers the official name for compulsive nose-picking (rhinotillexomania). Readers can also Crack open a pair of ribs to see how air fills the lungs; on subsequent pages, a cartoon boy shows off his circulatory system and heart. The grand finale offers a pop-up roller coaster ride and additional facts underneath flaps. The lighthearted humor and emphasis on all things gross entertain and inform. Ages 6–8. (Feb.)

From School Library Journal

Grade 3–5—The gross-out factor is high in this introductory explanation of the circulatory and respiratory systems. Pop-outs that take a variety of forms from a giant nose with "pick open" flaps to a pumping heart graphically illustrate the workings (and secretions) of these bodily functions. Detailed captions explain the pop-outs on each page. A roller coaster of fun facts ends the presentation. The book is packed with brightly colored drawings and close-up photographs of body parts that add to the appeal. The very things that make it interesting—the pop-ups and moving parts—also make it an impractical choice for circulation.—Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA

FUN! FUN! FUN!! This guide tells you just about all you need to know about the cirulatory and respiratory systems (assuming you're not a cardiologist or ENT, of course) in a very kid-friendly manner. It's gross enough to be entertaining, but not so gross that parents won't want to read it. Every page is filled with activities -- wheels to turn, tabs to pull, flaps to lift -- For example, the first page features giant pop-up nose, with a flap on each side to "Pick Open!" Under the flaps, you'll learn how smelling works. There is a booger flap --pull the booger out of the nose and you'll learn that compulsive nose-picking is called "rhinotillexomania." That's important. Pull the tongue out of the mouth and you'll learn about how your taste buds work. Open another flap and you'll learn about the advantages and disadvantages of picking, sniffing & blowing. (If possible, look at the back cover of the book on Amazon's search inside this book function -- it shows what the first page looks like when the book is opened.)

The second page features a neat model of breathing -- open the rib flaps, and underneath you'll find the lungs. Pull the diaphragm flap, and the lungs expand to fill with air. The third page is about blood -- it features a popu up of a kid getting a shot in the tush. You push the syringe to give the injection and learn why shots are an effective way to deliver medicine throughout the body. That page also features a bandage flap, and a vial of blood. The next page is all about the heart.

Each page features a close-up photograph of something mysterious -- such as cilia in your airways, bacteria, a heart valve, lung tissue -- all explained when you lift the flap.

I found this to be a very good book to pique the interest of young children, as well as some adults, in the science of the body. Encourages curiosity and discovery.

My 7-yr-old grandson carried it with him wherever he went, declaring it the best book he'd ever had. Another called it his favorite birthday present.
This is a good combination of genuine information and hilarious, interactive visuals -- nothing boring about these biology lessons!

My granddaughter loves these books. They really are a lot of fun and she learns so much about the body from this one and the other about where food goes.
