Part of the educational "The Best Book" series, The Best Book of The Human Body is a children's nonfiction picturebook filled cover to cover with fascinating facts about how each part of the body works and what it does. (Human reproduction is only briefly touched upon, in the mention that a fertilized egg cell grows into a baby inside its mother.) Illustrated with full color photographs, illustrations, and diagrams throughout, and enhanced with a one-page glossary to help young people understand basic terms such as "platelets" and "melanin", The Best Book of The Human Body is a wonderful, basic educational resource, enthusiastically recommended for children's library collections.
