School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6‘Two titles with a slightly different bent. Instead of a straightforward presentation of what exists, Parker poses a series of hypothetical questions such as ``What if the Earth were twice as big?'' and ``What if there were no wind?'' In The Human Body, he asks ``What if we had no skin?'' and ``What if people didn't have sex?'' Explanations are clear and lively (if perhaps given too many exclamation points). Average-quality cartoon illustrations mirror the texts and provide a touch of humor. Given their scattershot approach, the books are better suited to browsing than for report writing. The ``Understanding Science & Nature'' series (Time-Life) gives a bit more coverage in these areas.‘Susan Chmurynsky, East Kentwood Freshman Campus, MI (c) Copyright 2010.
