Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–5—Presenting perspectives from the past, present, and future, Parker offers an innovative and amusing look at the study of the body's organs. Although she writes simply, in conversational language, the author mentions serious aspects of our organs and gives readers insightful information that will inspire them to investigate the topic further. Many books like these get bogged down with medical terms and are too complicated for the intended audience. This one, however, gives clear explanations and historical sidebars and snippets of information throughout. The cycle of major organs is refreshingly described and is accompanied by vibrant and adequately detailed diagrams, all of which will keep readers engaged. While providing good content suitable for student research, the author's point of view is clear—know how your body works. Good organization of text and illustrations result in a book that will have broad appeal.—Valerie Scott-Dixon, Sherwood Forest Media Center, Norfolk, VA

Format: Hardcover
Nancy Parker has written and illustrated a wonderful book to be shared by children and adults. Her illustrations of the organs with clear signage are simple, yet accurate. In addition to the scientific facts she intersperses interesting and often humorous stories/facts about the organs. This is a book that is fun and educational to read as an adult, but it is especially fun to share with a child as I did this summer with my 8-year old grandson, who loved it. A nice feature is that one can pick it up and read about a couple organs and then put it down for the next reading. This book is a nice and entertaining way to learn about our organs!

I bought this for myself to get a basic understanding of our organ systems before moving on to a "real" anatomy and physiology book.. Honestly this one has taught me so much more than even the more advanced book lol. Very simple and easy to understand, not like crazy in depth (obviously) but perfect to get a great grasp of the basics that matter! Highly recommended. Cute too :)
