Reader's Diary #1285- Maris Wicks: Human Body Theater
That all said, while it's gotten rave reviews from educators and adults in general, my daughter was just okay with it. Sure, she picked it up and read a few sections, but other parts she felt were a bit dry. This despite Wicks' attempts to keep the information entertaining with jokes here and there, bright colors, and anthropomorphic cells and organs.
I think you'd have to still have to have a passing interest in anatomy and physiology to read this book cover to cover (as I did), otherwise it's simply a fine classroom resource or a reference book to pick at certain sections and to have them made clear.
Still, a far cry better than Masaharu Takemura's bizarrely sexist Manga Guide to Molecular Biology!
