5.0 out of 5 stars Cross between encyclopedia and coffee table book.
This book is child friendly without feeling young. Attentive, interested elementary kids would enjoy it without it seeming too educational, and yet it would help even high schoolers understand their studies. I use it for home schooling.
It has a way of explaining complicated biology in a way that children understand, without dumbing down the process. It's...

1.0 out of 5 stars BAD CHOICE FOR CHILDREN
This book is excessively candid on sex education for children. This book is presented as a children's book but the sex education in this book is more geared for a teenager. Additionally, I believe most parents would prefer, and do better jobs at explaining, the subject of sex to their teenager than this book does.The Usborne Complete Book of the Human Body: Internet...

This review is from: The Usborne Complete Book of the Human Body: Internet Linked (Complete Books) (Flexibound)
This book is child friendly without feeling young. Attentive, interested elementary kids would enjoy it without it seeming too educational, and yet it would help even high schoolers understand their studies. I use it for home schooling.
It has a way of explaining complicated biology in a way that children understand, without dumbing down the process. It's interesting enough to keep a kid's attention and the vivid labeled diagrams with cross sections, plentiful photos and microscopic blow ups are part of what make it so wonderful.
The internet links are interesting and helpful again for school work. They are kept up to date by Usborne so that they can't be expired site leads. New sites are constantly being added by Usborne. You only need to go to the Usborne site, type in the title of the book and the page you were reading and you are directed to current sites on the subject, or even on tangents of the subject. It's your choice how much you research.

It's like a cross between an encyclopedia and an enjoyment book. The chapters are organized by systems. (digestive system, nervous system, etc.) Yet anyone could pick it up and flip through to something that catches their interest.
It's just another great Usborne book. They're so successful because they test each aspect of the book with kids before publication to see how they like to learn and what makes it interesting to keep learning. Even the page layouts add to the books appeal.
You can't go wrong with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Son LOVES this book!, August 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Usborne Complete Book of the Human Body: Internet Linked (Complete Books) (Flexibound)
We purchased this book for a five year old who loves anatomy! We have yet to use the internet option, but the pictures and child-friendly explanations alone make this book a great addition to any family library.
