Great! Jan 5, 2008
This is a captivating science book for students. It includes fun experiments, too! It should be noted that there are many drawings of the human body, so be sure that the child you're teaching is old enough to look at drawings of the opposite sex "nude."
Oops, my daughter is accidentally learning. Nov 21, 2007
This is an awesome book. I use it for home schooling my daughter, but she doesn't think of it as school work. The author explains complicated workings of the human body in a way kids and adults can understand and even enjoy. There are lots of experiments that we actually do because they're just plain fun and the equipment is easily found around the house. It's appropriate for a wide range of ages...elementary to high school. It's pages are black and white, even the drawings, but you're so interested that you don't even care. I keep it beside the encyclopedia and have caught adults pulling it off the shelf and reading it. I'll be looking for other books by this author.
Neat book! Oct 21, 2007
We purchased this as a book for homeschooling. It's written in a very entertaining way and filled with a lot of neat experiments and hands-on activities.
Students loved Blood and Guts Feb 11, 2007
My students loved learning and reading about the information in this book and many other Brown Paper School Books. It sparked their interest to research many other aspects of the human body!
A great non-text text Feb 16, 2005
I am a teacher and have enjoyed and used this book with my fourth, fifth, and sixth grade classes for a number of years now. I like the way that the book is organized by systems and body parts. Information is presented clearly. The writing is in an informal, yet appropriate, style. There are a number of experiments and demonstrations for students to try. As has been pointed out, some of them are difficult and others require materials that may be difficult to find. However, most are appropriate, and many leave kids with that "Wow, I didn't think that would happen"-type of reaction. It should be pointed out that the book uses cartoon illustrations. They are generally fine but should be supplemented with models, more accurate drawings, posters, or photos. I think that this book does the best job of introducing how our bodies work and will use it for years to come.
