Human Body Visual Dictionary
Remember those kid dictionaries you enjoyed so much as a child - with parts labeled for identification? Well, Dorling Kindersley has produced a wonderful, illustrated, diagrammatic dictionary for older children and adults to savor! This, of course, is much more detailed - literally taking apart the body piece by piece. It's a fascinating process, beginning with the complete specimen, then breaking it down and identifying each part. Clear crisp photographs and illustrations are fascinating to view and better than a microscope for some of the tiny details. Definitely a quencher for the curious! You'll be referring to these again and again in your studies of anatomy and body systems. The pictures are not revealing, but there are a couple of places where body systems are superimposed over the female body, which some may object to.
