Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Witty and nimble verse about body parts pairs with whimsical drawings in this informative, fun science poetry collection. It begins with an invitation to solve a series of poetic riddles: "Of course you have a body, / But do you have a clue / Where all the body parts you've got are found / And what they do?" Each poem that follows poses a puzzle in verse (with a sly wink and a nod to Shakespeare) and provides hints for uncovering the body part in question. Sidebars further educate readers about the anatomical subject in question, while appended notes offer a crash course on poetic form and a few facts about the Shakespearean works that inspired the verses. Captivating lines such as "rumble, grumble, roil and rumble, / Acid burn and slurry tumble"(from the poem that refers to the stomach) should spark readers interest in poetry and human biology alike. A glossary for science terms is included in the back matter. Creative nonfiction companion to anatomy study at any grade level.
