Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-These picture books contain simple facts loosely tied to health-science themes. In Cells, Sam's complaint about his sweater shrinking leads Mom to explain that his bones, muscles, and skin are all growing. Drawings show how cells grow and split to make more cells. Sam giggles when his mother's pants split and exclaims, "You're growing out instead of up!" In the second book, a wiggly tooth at bath time leads mother and son to a discussion about fluoride; brushing; the parts of a tooth; and, finally, sharks, which keep growing new teeth all of their lives. Labeled drawings show the layers of a tooth as well as placement in the mouth. The information presented in the books is simple and accurate. The colorful cartoons, mixed with text in a handwritten style, make them inviting. Unfortunately, the similarity of poses, clothing, and expressions (Mom has exactly the same look on her face whether sorting laundry or speaking to Sam) rob the characters of any personality. Useful additions for libraries building science/health collections for the very young.-Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY

Format: Hardcover
The information about cells is delivered in a conversation between Sam and his Mom. Useful, but it is not on a level with the Magic School Bus. It contains good color illustrations, and I would recommend it to teachers and students in the 2nd and 3rd grades.

Format: Paperback
This is a fun story book that includes a conversation between a mom and child on cells. It does an excellent job of explaining more complex ideas in a manner that even a 3 year old can understand but also that a 10 year old can learn from it. I used this when teaching my children about human anatomy. This was everyone's favorite book about human cells.

Good science book. Informative and I used it for a science class in elementary school. Explains something quite difficult in a very easy way. I even used it for older kids.
