K-Gr 2-The simple layouts of these excellent series titles include colorful borders and lots of white space. Each spread discusses one topic ("Joints," "Inside Your Brain") and consists of a page of from three to six sentences opposite an illustration. The full-color photographs correspond well to the text and show children of various ethnicities. Words are defined on page margins and in the glossary. "Fun Fact" boxes include interesting side notes (babies are born with 300 bones, while adults have 206). An easy-to-follow "Hands On" activity is provided at the back of each book. Similar in scope to Anna Sandeman's Bones (1995) and Brain (1996, both Copper Beech), the material presented here is even more basic and will be highly useful for the youngest students and browsers.-Shauna Yusko, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
