Look Inside the Human Body Book Review
About the Book: It's the most amazing machine in the universe-the human body! Discover your body, system by system and layer by layer, in this fascinating new book in the Look Inside series. Look Inside: The Human Body takes kids on an incredible journey through the powerful muscular system, the "bone zone," the long and windy road of the digestive system, the blood-pumping circulatory system, the 47-mile long nervous system and beyond! A unique layered model of the human body serves as the center point of each section, revealing key body parts and functions, while entertaining, informative text explains how the body works. Each section is fully illustrated with colorful diagrams and includes fun, interactive lessons for kids to try themselves. Kids can learn how to take their own pulse, how to make their arms float, and what different colors of urine mean — a very popular demonstration, indeed!
Our Take: We're always looking for educational books for our kids. They're ages 6 and 7 and have a deep interest in math and science. I came across this great book on the human body by Silver Dolphin called 'Look Inside the Human Body'.
The book features a skeleton in the middle that has muscle, tissue and organs that disappear more and more as you turn each page and learn about the human body in layers. Everything is covered from the digestive system to the lungs and nervous system. The book is full of facts and realistic (but not gross) diograms that not only helped the kids to learn, but taught mom and dad a thing or two, as well!
