KIRKUS REVIEW

With a clinical white-on-black design, this volume allows readers to go system by system through the workings of the human body. Tabs on the pop-up organs invite children to peek under the skull and inside the brain and into the chambers of the heart. A lifting flap reveals a telescoping, snaky piece of paper that represents an unfolded small intestine leaping from a diagrammatic abdominal cavity on one page to a close-up of the large intestine on the other. Perhaps disappointingly to some, the look at the reproductive system is entirely two-dimensional, although a wheel does show fetal development. Information-wise, a bare introduction, but a mighty engaging one nonetheless. (index) (Pop-up/nonfiction. 9-14)
