By K. Roman VINE VOICE on May 18, 2004
Format: Library Binding
Simple discussion of the brain, its parts, and its functions. Explains neurons and the spinal cord, too. For example, "Your brain may have as many as 100 billion (BIL-yuhn) neurons (NOO-rahnz) to do its work." Illustrations are functional, but the photos are good. Ends with a nice "words you know" review of vocabularyand an index. Karen Woodworth-Roman, Children's Science Book Review

I gave a short talk to my grandaughter's 1st grade class about the brain. I'm a pediatric neurologist, so I interspersed a few magic tricks, showed them a 3 dimensional model and as a bonus, gave each of the youngsters a copy of this booklet. It's appropriate for early grade-school kids, covers the basics and is colorful, with photos of kids, diagrams, etc. The only criticism came from my grandaughter who found the picture of an actual brain being held by two gloved hands "scary". Other kids liked the book, parents gave positive feedback, etc. about it.

I bought this for my 4 yr old. The book is age appropriate for the designated age range. It gives kids' a beginning of understanding of the brain and body without going over their heads.

This book has good illustrations and is perfectly suited for primary aged children learning about the human body. I ordered this for my classroom, we were studying the human brain. All of the Rookie Readers I have purchased are geared for K-2 and have been helpful.

I used this book as part of the Brain Awareness Week activities for my 2nd grade class. I loved the way the information is presented in a clear and logical fashion.

Excellent starter on human physiology for a bright 1st grader. Even the pre-schooler was captivated by the images. A sound investment.

This book is full of great photos and pictures. The text is clear and direct. There is a picture of a real brain, which is always a little ... strange to see. I wish the picture of the neuron showed other neurons connecting to its branches. Nonetheless, a very well-done book for this age group. I'm interested in getting some of the other books in the series.
