IN YOUR FACE by Donna M. Jackson

IN YOUR FACE

The Facts About Your Features
Age Range: 8 - 10

KIRKUS REVIEW

Jackson offers an illuminating “Tour De Face” that pauses at each feature, lips to hair, for a look at its function and variations, then goes on to examine how we recognize faces, how our faces change to reflect age or emotion, and how and why people alter their looks. Along the way, she interviews scientists, introduces people with some uncommon disabilities, and closes with a look at the work of an anaplastologist—a maker of prosthetic ears, eyes, and other facial parts. The author skips past some topics, such as elective plastic surgery, and is rather stingy with photos, but she makes a lively tour guide nonetheless, and leaves young readers with both leads to further information, and a keener appreciation for that amazing set of organs they see in the mirror every morning.
