The Little Brainwaves Investigate... Human Body


DK Publishing - Author

Book: Hardcover | 235 x 159mm | 64 pages | ISBN 9780756662790 | 25 May 2010 | Dorling Kindersley | 5 - 10 years

Following on from the award-winning Brainwaves books for older children, DK introduces a brand new series for younger kids, featuring the Little Brainwaves. In each book, the illustrated Little Brainwaves characters poke, prod, and peer at their photographed subjects, providing an appealing and original way for kids to learn about an amazing variety of topics. In The Little Brainwaves: Human Body young readers can explore the world of the human body, shrinking down to a truly tiny size to examine us inside and out. 

This is a fabulous book. It is incredibly kid friendly with its bright colourful pictures. The information is all presented in little chunks of kid-friendly words so it is really easy for kids to read on their own. Both of my sons have had fun exploring this book.
The addition of the Little Brainwaves characters on each page adds to the fun of this book.  All three of my kids had a great time searching for each character. 

Both Aiden (age 9) and Owen (age 7) were able to read this book with very little help. Olivia (age 4) can't read yet but she had fun looking at all the illustrations and asking questions. 

Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me a copy of this book to review.
