Review: Your Digestive System by Rebecca L. Johnson


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

The digestive system is made up of the tongue, esophagus, stomach, intestines, and other parts. But what does the digestive system do? And how do its parts work together to keep your body healthy? Explore the digestive system in this engaging and informative book.
As part of the Searchlight Books™ collection, this series sheds light on a key science question—How Does Your Body Work? Interesting photos and useful diagrams will help you find the answer!

MY TAKE:

I'm always curious about books that help kids learn about scientific concepts.

Your Digestive System is a simplified look at the digestive system and how food passes through it.

This book seems geared towards the slightly older kids, around 4th to 6th grade. This makes it a good companion book for kids who are just learning about the digestive system or are having a hard time understanding it.

What sets this book apart and might make it more interesting to kids is the inclusion of x-rays. This certainly ups the book's cool factor.

Thanks to NetGalley and Lerner Publishing Group for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. It helps kids learn about the digestive system.
  2. It makes the topic more interesting.
  3. Kids might find the x-rays fascinating.

THE BAD:

  1. Some kids may find it boring.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Cheese, crust, and sauce mix together in your mouth.
READ IT IF:

  1. Your child is studying the digestive system.
  2. Your child likes reading reference and trivia books.
  3. You want your child to become more interested in science.
