Reviews

Gr 1-3-Cartoon characters speak directly to readers as they explore the five body systems. For example, in Nervous System, Nelly Neuron follows the path a signal travels from a finger on a hot stove to the brain and back to tell the hand to pull away in less than a second. The clever illustrations are presented in a comic-book style and include humorous elements: blood cells boarding a train representing a bloodstream with packages of waste and nutrients, a bespectacled pea working his way through the digestive system, etc. The illustrations also incorporate diagrams that identify system parts and functions, such as how tendons and ligaments work to keep joints stable and help move bones. Simple sentences above and below the image panels provide additional information in these basic and engaging introductions. (c) Copyright 2012.
