School Library Journal - 04/01/2024 Gr 3–5—Have you ever wondered if you need gravity to digest food? The human body is full of fascinating parts that work together in a symphony of motion to make all of our processes work. Those systems are broken down across this series in delightful detail from the saliva on our teeth to the nerves in our toes. Each book follows a snappy fact box style with some interconnected narrative to move through the specified system. Myths are dispelled along the way, but there is a generally positive vibe as the focus is truly on what makes the body amazing. VERDICT Fans of "True Books" will love this new addition to the collection. - Copyright 2024 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
