All About Your Senses – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
Using concrete examples, each title explains the basic purpose of its featured sense. For example, in Mouths the text “Maria tastes the lemon. Her sister dared her to do it! Maria makes a funny face. The lemon tastes sour” is paired with a picture of a girl grimacing over a lemon. Compact in size with large-font text set opposite a bright photo (many of them close-ups of kids using their senses) on each spread, this series has an intimate and friendly feel. . . . Bolded words are defined in the glossaries and each volume ends with a quiz and an additional page of facts. This series provides a fine introduction to the senses.
