Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-6. Simon once again proves his remarkable facility for making complicated science clear and understandable. These two entries in his series on the human body discuss the two systems that keep our bodies upright and moving, the skeleton and muscles. In Bones, Simon explains that despite their lifeless appearance, bones are made of living cells, and he describes each major group of bones, such as the spine, and how they connect (joints) and move (muscles). The muscular system gets its own book as well, where we learn about the voluntary, involuntary, and cardiac muscles. These two books continue the series' outstanding book design, with its large pages using computer-enhanced images as well as photographs and drawings to illustrate points of interest. Giving ample information for report writers, these will also give a young reader a sense of wonder about the "marvelous living machine that you are." --Susan Dove Lempke"
