Summary

Summary

Start with a picture of a human head; read all about the outer surface of the brain beneath the skull and the protective fluid that encases it. Then, peel back the acetate page to reveal the same spread but with the next layer of brain tissue and central nervous system visible. This completely unique system of show-and-tell combines cutting-edge computerized photomontage and acetate technology with tried-and-true nonfiction subjects featuring material written, researched, and photographed by experts in each field.

Booklist Review

Gr. 5^-8. "In Your Head," "In Your Chest," "In Your Abdomen," "In Your Legs" --for the many kids who wonder what's "in" there, this book is just what they need. Heading off each section is a double-page-spread illustration of the highlighted area of the body, with an overlay allowing children to see how its various parts fit together. Then the usual DK format kicks in: cropped and cutaway photos (many highly magnified) and diagrams arranged in a seemingly random fashion across each themed double-page spread, accompanied by tightly worded captions explaining and expanding briefly on the content of the pictures. The section, "In Your Chest," for example, comprises spreads on the heart, the "bloodstream," and the lungs. There's a good deal of information here--in bits and snatches--and some of the magnified photos are extraordinary. But the pages often seem cluttered; perhaps that's because the Day-Glo colors of the tinted photos detract from subject matter, which doesn't need a lot of brilliant coloring to make it fascinating. Intriguing information for browsing to partner with more traditional books on the human body. --Stephanie Zvirin


School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-9‘Two series entries that feature full-color photographs of three-dimensional models. Taylor introduces the functions of plants and their parts. Some of the topics include: reproduction in flowering and non-flowering plants, growth, defense, animal traps, parasitic plants, and cacti and succulents. Each subject is covered in a double-page spread with a brief introductory paragraph. Generally, there is one predominate photograph surrounded by smaller ones scattered across the page; detailed captions provide more facts. Following the same format, Williams covers the skeletal, nervous, circulatory, respiratory, excretory, and reproductive systems, as well as the sense organs. Captions for the photographs are unusually clear and concise. The three-dimensional models are limited by their static appearance, but they are, nonetheless, informative. The books do not treat their topics in great detail, but they are compelling for browsing or gaining an overview.‘Sylvia V. Meisner, Allen Middle School, Greensboro, NC (c) Copyright 2010.
