Series Made Simple

Clear, straightforward introductions provide novice researchers with basic information about various body systems. Numerous diagrams and photos complement explanations provided in the text. For example, a diagram of tendons, muscles, and bones in the knee is juxtaposed with a close-up photo of a soccer player’s leg ready to kick the ball. Each volume includes a related activity, such as making a model of a ball-and-socket joint. Notes to parents and teachers in the front of each book provide guidance on helping readers identify nonfiction features. VERDICT Because of interconnections noted in the volumes, collections needing to update or supplement materials on body systems should consider purchasing the entire set.
