The Human Body at a Glance

by Cristina Peraboni, Giulia De Amicis



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
From the cells and blood to the skeleton and the brain, this intriguing guide reveals the secrets of the human body . . . in easy-to-follow infographics! 
Kids can learn all about how their bodies work in an engaging, understandable new way, thanks to this unique illustrated handbook. Each page bursts with colorful infographics that explore the complex mechanism that is our body. Beginning with a timeline of human evolution, the book goes one by one through our cells, brain, skeleton, muscles, skin, blood, heart, lungs, digestive system, sight, hearing, smell, taste, reproduction, and genetics. Throughout, comparisons of humans to animals—for example, we have the same number of hairs as a chimpanzee—plus fun facts about our most bizarre characteristics make science accessible and entertaining.

Cristina Peraboni is a veterinarian who provides refresher courses for teachers and training courses for museum educators. She also works with various publishing houses, writing for both children and adults.

Giulia De Amicis completed her masters in communication design in 2012 and has been working as a visual designer and illustrator.
