Digestive System (Human Body) – School Library Journal

This solid and informative title (Digestive System) describes the digestive system from the moment food enters one’s mouth. Written with a conversational and interactive tone and accompanied by full-color photographs and diagrams, the book is easy to understand and will appeal to the target audience. Readers who need information for reports as well as those simply interested in anatomy and bodily functions will find the book satisfying. Aside from the various organs associated with digestion, there are also short chapters on Food Is Energy, Your Hungry Brain, Burps and Farts!, and stomachaches (Ouch!). This useful addition encourages healthy lifestyles and habits.
