SLJ Review of Let's Look at Body Systems!

Take a look under human skin and explore the fun world of anatomy and physiology with this early chapter series about how systems work in the body. The step-by-step processes take readers through each part of the body and talk about the interconnected aspect of how systems work. The explanation of the immune system in particular stands out, as it dives deep into something relevant for readers right now with easy-to-understand, illustrated explanations. ­

VERDICT: Filled with simple anatomical models and colorful illustrations throughout, this series is a must-have for elementary-aged budding biology readers.
