In this companion to Information Graphics: Animal Kingdom, stylized infographics demonstrate the development and functions of the human body. Topics include the senses, reproduction, the heart, brain, and skeleton, each introduced in succinct paragraphs. Simplified, iconlike images of the body and its constituent parts appear in a fluorescent palette colors amid information-packed captions and tabbed sections for easy browsing. An ear-shaped squiggle encircles images that represent the decibels of various sounds (a “noisy restaurant,” represented by a cocktail glass, reaches 80 decibels); elsewhere, readers learn about obesity, digestion, parasite, and more. Visual learners should find the presentation especially illuminating. Ages 6–9. (Aug.)
