    This introduction to astronomy offers readers clear, interesting text, detailed diagrams, interesting facts, and lots of large, full-color photography! Each two-page spread focuses on a different topic related to astronomy, including skywatching, telescopes, the sun, the moon, eclipses, stars, galaxies, constellations, what the night sky looks like at different times of the year, the planets (and finding them in the sky), and much more. Each page features interesting, but more general text on the topic, with plenty of related photos, each with detailed and informative captions. Geared for the beginning sky-watcher, there are lots of tips on finding these heavenly bodies in the sky, and star maps are included for both the Southern and Northern hemisphere at different times of the year. Referenced weblinks (accessed through Usborne's website) are featured with many topics, for further online exploration. 48 pgs. – Jess

    This book is not a science text, but it will help you with whatever science textbook you are using. It's a comprehensive science reference guide covering physics, chemistry and biology. Each area of focus features color-coded subtopics with significant detail. The chemistry section contains subtopics for general, physical, inorganic, organic, and environmental chemistry. The biology section includes ecology, botany, zoology, human biology, genetics and general biology. The physics section is divided into mechanics, heat, waves, electricity and magnetism, nuclear physics, and general physics.

    We've come to expect compelling color pictures, graphics and charts from Usborne, and this book does not disappoint. Every page has excellent visuals and concise explanations of scientific laws and principles. For example, the biology section includes a subtopic covering the nervous system. The book shows and describes the parts of the neuron including the cell body, the dendrites and the axon. The graphics do an excellent job of showing the interaction between nerve cells and how the chemical neurotransmitters work at the synapse between the cells. You learn the difference between association (or relay) neurons and motor (or instruction) neurons.

    With over 350 pages, a glossary, and complete index, this book makes finding information quick and easy. Use the book to review material already studied, or as additional explanation or clarification of current lessons. - Jerry

    Give your child a lift-the-flap book to help him connect the written word with objects in his life. This is an ideal way to give your beginners practice in word recognition. Vocabulary is categorized by theme: On the Farm; I Can . . ., (actions); My Body and Clothes; Outdoor Words; On the Beach; What do They Say (animal sounds); and The Bedroom. Often, the focus of similar books is to introduce nouns; this one includes some verbs as well. Children learn the written word by either lifting the picture flap or lifting the written word flap. Below each flap, the opposite form is represented. This way, children can check their answers and learn to identify words. Pages are full color, quite pleasing, and not distracting. The last two pages list, in picture and written form, all 72 words used.

    Similar in some ways to See Inside Your Body, also by Usborne, this book is packed with more flaps to lift and geared for a slightly younger reading level. In thirteen study pages the book covers digestion, the circulatory system, bones and muscles, the brain, the senses, growing and healing. Most topics are presented on facing pages, with a combination of large and small cartoonish illustrations (all captioned), and flaps integrated on most of them. On the spread about the brain, much of the spread is devoted to a large illustrated flap with the brain, covered with small cartoons of what the different parts of the brain are responsible for. When you lift the main flap, you see an example of what happens when your body sends your brain a message, complete with numbered steps and a line to trace with your finger. The edges of the pages are filled with small illustrated flaps that introduce other facts about the brain: how it is made up of two halves, how the skull protects the brain, how much the brain weighs, etc. To add to the fun, many of these flaps are "nested" with additional flaps hiding underneath with even more information, and occasionally other pull-tabs and pop-ups incorporated as well. Little hands and eyes will find lots to explore here. – Jess

    Let the learning begin! Designed for elementary children but also beneficial for older learners, this engaging sticker book introduces foundational concepts in a fun, interactive way. In the traditional Usborne style, the two-page layouts contain colorful and clear-cut illustrations; concise, interesting text; and fascinating "tidbits" of information. Contents include an overview of body systems and functions, skeletal system, muscles, circulatory system, digestive system, brain, senses, cells, reproductive system, health and sickness, compelling facts and a brief history of medicine.

    Over 130 single-use, brightly colored stickers reinforce the concepts as children place the appropriate sticker in the proper place. Younger children now have a great hands-on activity to work on while older siblings label and color in their anatomy coloring books. Glossary. SC. 32 pgs. ~Deanne

    Even though there are lots of mysteries left about how the brain works, scientists have discovered a lot about this amazing part of the body. In a friendly and entertaining way, this book gives a very good overview of the brain, including the anatomy of the brain, components of the brain, how the brain develops over time, intelligence, eyesight, memory, mental illness, drugs that effect the brain, animal brains compared to humans, computers compared to humans, how the brain functions, the history of how we came to know about the brain, and more. It really is a good overview, with a solid amount of information given on each page. This is accomplished by using full-color, cartoony illustrations, speech and thought bubbles, information boxes, fact-filled captions, and short paragraphs that get right to the point. The illustrations and speech bubbles add a lot of humor to the book, so students will enjoy perusing it just for fun. It's also good because it gives you some great examples of how the brain works by providing real-life examples students can relate to that deal with the brain, and even a few puzzles to solve that will require the use of brain power. Like many Usborne books, this one includes quicklinks, which are recommended website links that explain more about a specific topic, give examples, or provide a fun activity dealing with the topic. Even without the links, this book is full of fascinating and fun-to-read information about the brain. By Rebecca Treays, 32 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
