Format: Paperback
I used this book as a starting point to teach my 10-year-old son the facts of life. All of the chapters are well done, and the section on the reproductive system has wonderful descriptions and art, without any of the corniness you find in some books. Great if you like the scientific approach!

Best Book for Elementary Aged Children Jan. 26 2006
By David Cummings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In the process of completing my degree in biochemistry, I took various biology, anatomy, and physiology classes and purchased the requisite textbooks for hundreds of dollars. I now teach upper elementary students in a Montessori school. I can use the college textbooks for occasional reference or specific research with the students, but when I need to present an impressionistic lesson or just tell about the human body, this book is the one I go to. It presents the body like a story with simple, clear, beautiful illustrations inspired by the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci. If you are a Montessorian (or any teacher for that matter) looking for a simple, concise reference to supplement lessons on the human body, I would look no further. My co-teacher has used this book for years and has thankfully shared it with me. Get it if you ever find it!

The best anatomical reference book for kids and some adults Jan. 3 2014
By W. Marks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is for kids, it is also out of print. I keep looking for copies as they wear out in my office. The illustrations are amazing. They are clear and explanatory . I use it in my practice for adults as well. Anatomy books are hard for lay people to understand. This makes it all clear. Wendy Marks, author "Your Souls Companion" on amazon now.
