Presents a visual introduction to the human body that covers key anatomical information, genetics, bone mapping and other essential topics.

McMillan Palgrave

The PICTURE THIS! series is a brand-new program of reference books that aims to engage and interest a new generation of visually sophisticated children and general readers. Fresh, clean, direct and uncluttered, every spread distills one subject area into a visual medley of raw facts, figures and statistics relating to the most essential aspects of the topic. The purely graphic approach provides a clear and concise overview, as a jumping-off point to further investigation and cross-referencing. In some ways a visual dictionary, in other ways a revision guide, the quirkily inventive graphics, icons, tables, graphs, maps and step-by-step illustrations are an entertaining way of absorbing information and getting to grips with concepts that can be difficult to understand when explained through a more conventional text-and-image format.

Picture This Human Body is a quick, clean, no-nonsense reference book all about the human body. Designed for the sophisticated eye of today's middle schoolers, fascinating facts and important anatomical information alike is presented both visually and in text form. With clean, fresh illustrations and diagrams to provide extra support, Picture This! Human Body covers the themes most commonly covered in this widely studied science subject-area. Topics covered include building blocks of life, water and the body, bone mapping, growth, genes and inheritance, and keeping healthy. Broken down into easily digestible, bite-sized sections, this book is a must have for every classroom, library, and home bookshelf.
