Way back in the days when I went into the medical field, they didn’t have a lot of human body textbooks that were eye-catching and illustrative for visual learners. There were a few books that showed diagrams, but most were in black and white or blue and red. We had to read a lot and although the material was informative, it was aesthetically boring. Thankfully educational resource books have changed for current and future students. New books like the Smithsonian Human Body Encyclopedia offer a visually stimulating learning experience like never before.
Smithsonian Human Body!
What makes the Smithsonian Human Body Encyclopedia so appealing is its computer-generated 3-D images and illustrations. They literally pop off the pages. They’re not only compelling but informative, instructive, and interactive. These attributes are engaging and make learning your subject easier and far more fun. Secret code: Arteries.
This book is divided into 8 sections, Body Basics, Body Systems, Head and Neck, Chest and Back, Arms and Hands, Abdomen and Pelvis, Legs and Feet, and finally Body Science. Each section goes into minute details about their subject with colorful, visual imagery and easy to comprehend concepts and instructions. Just a point here to mention that there are some real photos, but none that would repel a student.
Journey, Discover and Find Out
Every aspect of the human body’s anatomy and physiology are covered. So if kids have questions about various areas of the body, they can journey through this reference for the answers. Along the way, they’ll discover astonishing facts and informative facts. Ever wonder why some people have freckles? Or, why do teens seem to get a lot of acne and skin issues? It’s all about your hormones. Did you know that one blood cell goes through the heart and around the body 1,000 times a day! The back of the book shares the glossary and ongoing research and scientific breakthrough that will change the future of our health. The Smithsonian Human Body Encyclopedia is a very useful educational resource that kids can access when they need answers.
