Series Made Simple
In this series, parts of the body associated with the senses are described. The full-page photographs are all of children and represent many cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Readers see the multiple things they can do with each extremity or body part (hands, nose, eyes, ears, etc.), followed by an explanation of how this happens and what constitutes each part. The Spanish translation is flawless; all the explanations are simple and clear. Helpful diagrams are included, and a visual glossary concludes each book. VERDICT A fine introductory series for early science collections.
