How Is My Brain Like a Supercomputer?
And Other Questions About The Human Body
By Melissa Stewart (Author), Peter Bull (Illustrator)
Why do I have a belly button? What happens to the food I eat? Why am I different from everyone else on Earth? All children want to understand how their body works, and this lively illustrated book explains it all, from what DNA is to how their heart pumps blood.
“The Good Question! series continues to offer interesting facts in an appealing fashion. Working within a set format, the skilled authors organize questions and two- or three-paragraph answers in ways that introduce and cover each subject appropriately. On each spread, clearly captioned illustrations -- maps, drawings, close-up photographs, and realistic images -- face the text. The questions are those a child reader might ask. Beginning with the DNA instructions that make us each unique, How Is My Brain like a Supercomputer? goes from our protective skin to our muscular, circulatory, nervous, skeletal digestive, and respiratory systems. . . . Attractively presented, with up-to-date, accurate information, these science titles are a first choice.”-
