Review

School Library JournalThis clever, well-illustrated romp doesn't mince words, but gives students the straight truth about even the most unpleasant functions of the human body. The colorful cartoons . . . do help get the key concepts across. The book is divided into sections based on systems, so kids could skip to just what they are interested in or browse through the whole book. This is a fun introduction to how the human body works. SimplyScience Blog (Books and easy science lessons)The appeal of this book is that it can be read straight through or read out of order, section by section. It is easy to follow and understand and presents information aimed at the middle grade kids who are being introduced to the body and its functions. This is a fun one and reveals the body processes in more like an action film than a science text. Library Media ConnectionThe uninhibited and humorous style will attract this age group and reluctant readers. Presented in first person, the text makes its points with jokes and wordplay, but it also provides lots of information. Some amazing statistics show up at the bottom of each page. . . . This book would make good supplemental material in science or health classes, especially for those students who think that science is boring. Recommended Tusconcitizen.comYoung readers ages ten and up can learn fascinating facts about the human body in this well crafted new book in the Basher popular science series. . . . Readers will come away with a better understanding of the fundamental components of their bodies. . . . [A] powerful little book. Infodad.comThe personification of body parts is right in line with Basher's usual approach, and the implements they are given are cleverly reflective of their real functions, making the [book] both informative and fun to look at. . . .Dan Green's text has the body bits narrating their own stories, which further humanizes them. . . . It is quite easy to imagine very young children becoming entranced by the --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My 8 year old son has a number of the books in this series now and he absolutley loves them. He dips in and out when the mood takes him or a topic is discussed at school.

Very well written for this age group as the descriptions seem to stick in their heads.

HASH(0x9c1616a8) out of 5 stars All of the books in this series are wonderful! 4 April 2011
By rain4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My son is 6 but can read at a 5th grade level, and he loves all of these books. The color photos and the way they explain things, is perfect to grasp the attention of both children and adults. I wish I had these when I was in school.

HASH(0x9c1618f4) out of 5 stars Only Basher Can Make a Gallbladder Super Cute 19 Aug. 2012
By Nana Hawkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love Basher's illustrations, and I think it is great that he illustrates children's introductory science books. I recently read this to get a brush-up on my knowledge of the human body. I quite enjoyed it. Each chapter builds on ideas and concepts introduced in previous chapters, and rather than organizing each chapter by organ system, it starts with the basic building blocks of life (cells and other microscopic organisms) and progresses to grouping systems that work together in subsequent chapters. It is a fun read for kids because each organism "narrates" its own story of how it functions. Human Body is actually part of the Basher Science Books series; Basher has also illustrated a number of board books and picture books for toddlers that present early concepts such as Opposites and Shapes. They're really cute, and the kids at my bookstore love them. I highly recommend them for young reluctant readers or budding scientists 8 or 9 and up who want to read a basic science book without being overwhelmed by sophisticated details.

HASH(0x9c161b34) out of 5 stars Love this series of books! 13 Oct. 2011

I came across one of the books in this series in the gift shop at the Franklin Museum and thought it would be great for my son who just started college. He has some tough classes that require a lot of memorization and these books are perfect for that... takes tough topics and breaks them down into terms easier to understand. They have great visuals too. Ended up buying 3 of them "The Period Table", "Chemistry" and "The Human Body". His study partner loved them and I bought a set for her too. Great books!

HASH(0x9c161e94) out of 5 stars I love these books! 27 May 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I started buying these books for my son when he was 4 years old, the first one was the Periodic Table and within months he knew every single element and it's properties. I then got him the Biology and Physics books and he talks about Entropy and Schrodinger's Cat like an expert. Both me and my son are ADD and struggle with reading comprehension, but the pictures and the characters in these books make it so easy for him to retain what he is reading. He is now 6 years old and on his way to being a total science nerd like his Mommy.

HASH(0x9c161c48) out of 5 stars Captivating to My 9 Year Old 22 July 2012
By N. Larsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My son recently brought this home from the library and is reading it almost every night. He loves it! Every morning he tells me new things that he is learning, and we talk about it together because he is learning fascinating things--such as the liver which sorts the old red blood cells. I see my six year old looking through it too. The sense of humor that the writer has and the cartoon illustrations are really interesting to boys!
