Super Simple Body Set 2 – School Library Connection
Medical doctor Karin Halvorson has teamed with professional educators to write simple, accurate books about human anatomy, physiology, and health topics in attractive well-organized text. Each title succinctly defines the major topic and moves to smaller parts and details in a logical progression. Hands-on activities. . .may involve building a model of the body part, growing bacteria from a variety of locations on gelatin, or doing an experiment that shows the importance of using the correct blood types in a transfusion. The contemporary graphic design of the books is outstanding, featuring clear detailed photographs of the experiments and detailed labeled drawings of the body parts and systems. If your curricula include health units about the human body this series is essential. If your collection includes the old formulaic human body books, replace them. Recommend the series to local pediatricians to have in their office waiting rooms. Recommended
