2010 Award
Human Body Q & A
(DK $12.99 Score:)

Colorful photos and simple answers to typical questions make this a book to dip into for interesting information about the human body. It looks at our bones, heart, muscles, digestive and circulatory systems, our brains and senses. It also addresses why we need to eat and how our bodies heal when they are injured. Some of the color photography is totally amazing and the factoids are not too big for beginners to wrap their curiosity around. 8-12.
