Your brain uses our five senses sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch to figure out what's going on in the world around you. This book shows how your senses work by combining easy-to-understand explanations with detailed illustrations for you to color. You'll also find out about similarities and differences between human and animal sensory perception.
Discover the nervous system, the pathway of sensory information, and how neurons receive and send data. Read about synesthesia, an extreme form of perception thatenables people to hear sounds in response to smell, feel something in response to sight, and experience other unusual sensory combinations. Learn about special animal senses that detect heat, provide night vision, and alert birds, fish, and mammals to when it's time to migrate. These and other fascinating aspects of the senses are described and illustrated with 46 full-page illustrations to color.

These high-quality, informative coloring books are just right for accompanying a unit study. Subjects are nicely detailed. Generally, illustrations on the inside covers depict the natural colors if you want to produce a realistic finished product. Very brief captions are nonetheless instructive. After coloring through a book, we're certain you'll be able to more easily identify specimens when you see them. Some books, like Rocks and Minerals, have several pages of worthwhile information in the front, including a discussion of different types of rocks and minerals, how to start collecting rocks, classifying rocks, and specific tests for identifying them. The My Horse coloring book has an introductory four pages on horse anatomy and features, then contains generous captions that form a mini-course in identifying, classifying, riding, and caring for horses.
