Booklist Review for My Senses
This entry in the Get Started with STEM series limits its examination of human senses to the traditional five, combining simple facts with multiple, easy demonstrations, and offering a sturdy balance of basic biology and active experiments. Having learned, for instance, about rods and cones, experimenters are invited to mix paints to invent a new color, while keeping precise records. The narratives and the experiments are both laced with review and discussion questions, and each chapter is backed up with downloadable material on the publisher’s website, ranging from worksheets to an additional eight pages on skin and the nervous system (for the chapter on “Touch”). Colorful views of a diverse cast of shiny-faced children seeing, tasting, and listening join simplified diagrams or close-up photos with anatomical parts labeled. A solid foundation for younger readers.
