Human Body Factory: The Nuts and Bolts of Your Insides

Front Cover

Human anatomy has never been as entertaining as this look at a day in the busy human body factory. From the CEO sending out orders in the brain to "waste" being sorted and delivered out of the body at the other end, the busy workers who keep everything running smoothly introduce each ‘department.’ All the major systems are covered, and the ingenious illustrations are packed with  humorous details that kids will love to pore over. All of this amazing artwork is backed up with   fascinating facts and clear explanations of the body’s essential processes. Whether it’s toxic signs and workers wearing biohazard suits in the large intestine, lab workers in dinghies mixing gastric juices in the stomach with a giant whisk, or park keepers on the skin keeping things clean among glades of gently swaying hairs and sweat-gland sprinklers, we promise that kids will never think about their bodies in the same way again.

User Review  - Jeanne Williams - Goodreads

Magic school bus on steroids. Illustrations are interesting and complex. Information provided in text bubbles. Glossary, index, and a three-page foldout that pulls the whole text together. Grat for a unit on the human body. Read full review
