A Mind-Boggling Guide to the Brain
Hardcover      ISBN: 3899557255

This book provides insightful, easy-to-follow answers to children's questions about the brain accompanied by fun, enlightening photographs. We use our brains every day, but how do they actually control our thoughts, our movements, and our feelings? Does the brain turn itself off at night? Can people who research the brain read minds? In That's What You Think , experts respond to 80 questions posed by children about the brain. Their answers explore how our brains develop, what they are made of, and how they work. They reveal astounding information and facts not only about the human brain, but also about the gray matter of earthworms, ants, and sperm whales. The images created by Jan von Holleben capture our personal control rooms in action--as we taste, get scared, study, juggle, and sleepwalk. These fun, enlightening photographs clearly demonstrate that even when we do nothing at all, our brains are hard at work.

The Facts About Your Features
Hardcover      ISBN: 0670036579

Your face is a one-of-a-kind tool you use to communicate with the world. It's the first thing people see when they meet you, and it's what they use to recognize you later. On the outside, your face is what makes you, you. How much do you know about this important body part? Do you know why your features are arranged the way they are? Or how the idea of beauty differs from culture to culture? Here Donna M. Jackson, author of the acclaimed nonfiction picture book The Bone Detectives, answers these questions and presents funny, strange, and sometimes unbelievable facts about the face. Using the straightforward, journalistic style she's known for, Jackson explains the basics of our eyes, ears, mouths, and noses. Then she dives into topics ranging from unusual facial disorders to how a prosthetic eye is made. With 30 full-color photographs, a glossary, index, and detailed source notes, In Your Face is an intriguing and fresh tour of the face that will fascinate readers.
