    I think "adventure" was a good choice of words to include in this whirlwind tour of the human body! This full-color, lively guide takes readers system by system through the human body, incorporating diagrams, detailed anatomy illustrations, facts, physical activities, and pencil-and-paper activities. Nine chapters cover the skeletal system, muscular system, nervous system, circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system, eyes, ears, taste and smell. Each section is several pages long, and moves from the general to the more specific in content, and wraps up with activities. In the skeletal system section, readers can examine a fully labeled skeleton, with common and anatomical names for the bones and bone groups, and read facts about our bones. The next page zeroes in on the spine, shows how the spinal bones are put together, and shows how bones support our body and protect it. The last page on bones discusses bone growth, and shows the different parts of a bone using a detailed bone diagram and a blown-up cross-section of bone. The activities for the bone section include a word puzzle using bone terminology, a match between common and scientific bone names, a word problem that asks students to try to figure out how tall they may get, and a list of places on your body you can touch to feel the different bones and joints that are hidden underneath. Although the pages are pretty busy, the book quality is excellent, and the detailed anatomy drawings are terrific. I also like that the activities and "side-bars" apply anatomy topics to kids, so they can "experience" for themselves, and think about anatomy in terms of their bodies, not just from a drawing in a book! - Jess

    You've probably looked at or used an anatomy coloring book with your students, but this book takes the quality to a new level. This coloring book has a hardcover, 52 illustrations to color on thick durable pages, and a lot of information. The idea behind the book is that you will remember the material better if you make an association between the information and coloring a picture of the topic. The book is divided into chapters which include terminology, skin, skeletal, muscular, taste, head, brain, nervous, endocrine, lymphatic, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, and immune systems. The illustrations are anatomically correct and include scientific labeling. Two pages are devoted to each topic with one page of information which also includes '10 things to remember' for every topic and 1 page of illustrations to color. While these don't have all of the detail you might find in some other anatomy coloring books, they are still detailed enough to be used as a supplement for any high school curriculum. This 128-page book also includes high-quality colored pencils (Faber Castell 8 color set), an eraser, and sharpener. A 52-question, fill-in-the-blank quiz is found at the conclusion of the book along with answer key and a full-color guide to the illustrations to be colored in the book. I know this book is intended for high school, but I think you could probably use it with junior high as well. The information is in an easy-to-read format and the book with materials is easy to transport with the built in pencil case. Use it as a ready reference, study tool, or reinforcement as you color a visual reminder. - Donna

    Take a three-dimensional, inside look at the human body as you journey through this book. Each book is centered around (literally) a 3-D model of the human body in the center of the book,s designed so that when you flip a page, a layer of the model flips with the page, leaving the rest of the model in place. For example, a turn of the first page lifts off the front of the skull and the ribs, allowing you to see the remaining bones and body systems underneath. And so it goes, with every turn of the page. Around the model are different sections focusing on specific topics related to what is isolated from the model on each page. The informational text is supplemented with well-drawn diagrams and illustrations of the concepts. And of course, the other neat thing is that when you're done reading through the book, you are viewing the clear model, fully reconstructed, from the back! It's a very neat concept, kind of similar to the Undercover books for younger kids (see description in the Biology section). - Jess

    Give your children a close-up to the inner workings of the human body, allowing them to identify and place major organs on the felt torso. The human body torso itself is 34" in height, and beautifully illustrated. The human brain and other structures in the head are shown bisected, as are the lungs.. However, other structures such as the major veins and arteries, and the heart are shown whole, as are the rest of the structures in the lower torso. The 34 pieces range widely in size, from the 10" large intestine to individual cells of about 1" in height. Pieces vary from actual body parts to place on the torso, to diagrammed depictions of individual cells and tissues, stages in growth and reproduction, and diseases. A 32-page lesson guide is included, to aid teaching of the different body systems, and health habits. This set is pre-cut. CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.

    Peering in the mirror only tells part of the story of the miraculous workings of our human body. While human body books abound, few take it to the next level and show beneath the surface. Beginning with an overview of our body systems and framework, children are introduced to the brain and nervous system muscles, heart and lungs, nutrition and digestive system, skin, hair and nails, and stages of life including DNA and reproduction. Reproduction is covered age appropriately, with illustrations of egg implantation through fetus development. Each section is a trifold, with the right-side page opening to the “slide and discover” window that shows internal anatomy and additional content. Detailed diagrams, colorful illustrations and clearly presented information make this an excellent introduction to our amazing human body. 20 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    This Janice VanCleave book follows the format of her other books with easy to understand explanations and line drawings. However, while her other books are based around experiments, there aren't as many in this book. It is more of a learning book to teach about the different aspects of the body. But there are activities, thought provoking questions, and experiments mixed in throughout the book for kids to work through while they gain a better understanding of how the body functions. - Melissa

      This adorable set is a great way for your children to be introduced to human anatomy. The 28 page, oversized book (7.5x14.2”) takes your child on a journey through each part of the human body – Bony Frame, muscles (On the Move), respiratory system (Deep Breath), Blood Flow, Beating Heart, digestive system (Eating), Liver & Kidneys, Brain, Nervous System, Seeing & Hearing, and Skin & Hair. Cute, animated illustrations have a lot of kid-appeal, as they learn about their body. A glossary provides a list of words with definitions that may be new to young students.

      The larger, thick puzzle pieces (28) assemble to make a 38-inch floor puzzle of the human body. Even better, the unique way the pieces fit together allow you to move the limbs. Children can learn to identify the parts on their puzzle, as they read their way through the book. Pieces can be stored in the box attached to the back of the book. ~ Donna

    If you enjoy David Macaulay's detailed, illustrated tours of architecture in Castle, Cathedral, or Pyramid or how he visually explains the intricacies of machines in The Way Things Work, you won't want to miss this book in which he explores the just-as-impressive world inside the human body. Even if you think you have no interest in the subject, you can't help but be drawn in by the detailed and imaginative illustrations, some of which resemble detailed anatomical drawings, and others with whimsical "takes" on the various systems such as comparing the blood vessels to a theme park ride where oxygen molecules jump on and off of red blood cells. The 7 chapters explore cells and tissues, breathing and the circulatory system, the digestive system, the nervous system, the immune system and the reproductive system (quite tastefully done, I might add). Each page is dominated by Macaulay's lively colored pencil illustrations displaying body structures from a variety of imaginative viewpoints. After you pore over the picture, a paragraph or two on explains the inner workings of the subject. I love the illustrations of enlarged body structures with a small walkway or railing in the foreground where people are standing and staring. These define the book as a whole rather well; it's not an anatomy atlas or encyclopedia. It's a very visual tour through the systems of the human body that shows readers "how it works" and what those amazing systems at work inside of us would look like if we could really shrink ourselves and take a field trip. 336 pgs, hc. - Jess
