About the Author

Rebecca L. Johnson has written dozens of national award-winning books that highlight why science is such an exciting endeavor: there are no shortages of new species, remarkable adaptations, and fresh insights into life on earth. She believes that scientists have the world's best jobs, and has been fortunate to work with many of them in far-flung corners of the planet, including Antarctica's frozen interior and the ocean's abyss. "Through my writing, I hope to show young people that the world is full of wonders, and that science is the path that leads to them."

Reviews

Gr 3-5-This series will be useful in any collection needing updated texts about the human body. The titles clearly explain what functions each of the six systems performs. The design is eye-catching and attractive, with lots of clean white space and an easy-on-the-eyes font. Captioned photographs or colorful diagrams appear on every page. Many of the photographs were taken with a microscope and are sure to fascinate children. In every volume, the detailed photo captions and sidebars provide additional interesting factoids that complement the main texts. For example, readers learn in Respiratory that "You can sing high and low by tightening your vocal cords." These titles will appeal to browsers, and the strong back matter makes them useful for reports as well. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
