    The Sense of Smell

    The Sense of Smell

    by Mari Schuh

    REVIEWS:


     
    2/1/08 School Library Journal
    Basic information is presented in a well-organized format. Each book includes a of how the sense works along with a diagram of relevant parts of the body. A comparison is also drawn between the human sense and that of one or two animals. The books conclude with healthy suggestions on how to protect our senses. Fun facts (for example, that camels have four inch-long eyelashes) are included here and there. Bold photographs of children of diverse ethnicities are framed with colorful borders throughout each title. The suggested book and Web extensions have the texts' same literacy level, making them appropriate for the intended audience. These titles duplicate information found in Mary Mackill's "Super Senses" series (Steck-Vaughn, 2006), but if there is a need for new ones, they are a safe bet.
