Key Features


Kids turn to books to connect to the wider world around them. According to the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report, 40% of kids look for books to help them explore worlds and places they've never been. Another 26% look for books to help them become familiar with new topics. Start with this set for the budding scientist in your world who is looking to understand the science of the human body.

Parent Tip: Reading role models are critical to instilling reading as an integral part of a child’s life, and do not need to be limited to parents: frequent readers have more encouragement to read from family members, friends, principals, teachers and school librarians than infrequent readers.

This set includes:

  • The Science of Acne and Warts: The Itchy Truth about Skin
    Your skin is your body's coat. It covers everything inside you. Muscles, bones, blood, organsâ-your skin keeps it all in place. It also keeps bad stuff out, like germs. This beguiling guide to skin, the largest organ in the human body, explores everything from how it protects us to how it can itch and irritate us, and delves into why skin is such a integral part of our identity.

  • The Science of Poop and Farts: The Smelly Truth about Digestion
    Everyone poops. It may seem pretty gross, but it's perfectly healthy and natural. Poop (also called feces or excrement) is the solid waste that's left after we've digested our food. It's the stuff our bodies can't use for energy or growth, and it passes out of us when we go to the toilet. So poop is really just the final product of our digestive system. In this gut-wrenching guide we will explore how we digest our food, and all the strange side effects of this complex and fascinating process-including burps and farts. We will look at what happens when things go wrong, and how this affects the color, smell, and texture of our poop. We will also find out how poop is not just a smelly waste product, but can actually be useful to us.

  • The Science of Scabs and Pus: The Sticky Truth about Blood
    We all have blood inside us. It is constantly on the move, traveling around your body carrying all sorts of useful things the body needs. Blood is vital for life. We can't live without it, so the body tries to keep blood safe and clean inside it. This engrossing guide to blood explores the structure, uses, and lifecycle of blood, covering everything from why we grow scabs over cuts to why people donate blood at hospitals.

  • The Science of Snot and Phlegm: The Slimy Truth About Breathing
    Breathe in, breathe out... We all do it, every day and every night. Breathing is essential for life. It brings oxygen (a gas in the air) into our lungs. We need oxygen to keep our brains and bodies working properly. Without it-without breathing-we would die very quickly! This breathtaking guide to breathing explores the process of breathing and how disgusting substances like mucus and snot have unexpected uses.
