From Usborne: "A fact-packed, beautifully illustrated, all-round introduction to the human body and how it works. Full of extraordinary photographs, detailed diagrams and stunning scans, X-rays and microscope images of the human body. Engaging, friendly text and clear, simple explanations. Experiments and activities show you how to take your own pulse, test your reaction time and fool your brain with optical illusions. Amazing facts and world records, including the world’s tallest man, the oldest person ever and the longest fingernails on record.
What is an Usborne Internet-linked book? It is a book that contains descriptions of websites that take you further into the subject in a fun and informative way. You can find links to all the sites listed in this book on the Usborne Quicklinks website at www.usborne-quicklinks.com. Will the websites go out of date? Websites do change from time to time, so the sites will be regularly reviewed by Usborne researchers, and the links will be updated."
My thoughts: Usborne is amazing when it comes to non-fiction books. There seems to be something for nearly every age level. Look Inside Your Body and See Inside Your Body are lift-the-flap board books for younger kids, the First Encyclopedia of the Human Body is a basic 64-page encyclopedia for early elementary, and now this Complete Book of the Human Body is packed full of information for mid- to upper-elementary. Many of Usborne's non-fiction books such as this one are recommended in many homeschooling curriculums.
One of the best things about Usborne's non-fiction books is the Quicklinks website. It is continually monitored for both internet safety and up-to-date information, and allows kids an even deeper look into the material they are studying.
