A noteworthy review of Looking at Layers from Booklist on April 1, 2020
Readers needing an introduction to the four basic layers of the human body will find a good starting point in this title, part of the Looking at Layers series (8 titles). Skin, muscles, organs, and the skeleton are covered, including their compositions, functions, and the roles they play in keeping the body safe and healthy, as well as the way in which they work together. Brief chapters break the layers down into further detail, with large, labeled illustrations allowing readers a close-up view of cells, tissues, and organs. A page of fast facts summarizes major points, followed by a brief glossary and recommended reading. The clear, descriptive paragraphs provide the essential information, as well as interesting facts, in a tone that will be easy for young readers to follow.
