1.0 out of 5 stars Anatomically incorrect BS
By Christie on December 23, 2018
I got this for my son because hes become very interested in his body. Why the f$^@*!& does a book by Smithsonian have an anatomically incorrect illustration of the human body? In other words where is the foreskin?? Why is this normal, biologically important part of the body just completely left out? I'm returning the book, I'm not keeping something that is going to teach my kids that it in order to be "normal" they have to have a piece of their body cut off.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Smithsonian, we did not evolve from apes!!
By Loveamazon on February 12, 2019
So far all is well with this book. Getting my son into learning about the human anatomy, as others have mentioned it does show male and female parts so caution when showing little kids this book if you're not ready to teach them that yet. The thing I don't like is on page 153 it talks about the pelvis and “how we evolved from four legged ape like creatures”... Excuse me, WHAT?? I will be crossing this text out as that is not what I believe and don’t think it should be published in an educational book aimed at teaching about the anatomy of the human body. Aside from this major issue, however the book has very nice illustrations and you can easily break down for younger kids, my son is almost six. Pages are large and have colorful pictures. This is enough for me to keep the book, however if you read this and are concerned, go through the book before you give it to your child so that you can block certain things out if you need to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Just great!!
Reviewed in Canada on September 13, 2020
This is a great book for middle/early-high schoolers. It shows detailed images about each organ system and organ. On every page, there are fun facts located on the top page. The pictures are detailed and almost all major physiological processes are explained, accommodated with an accurate anatomical explanation. However, I don't recommend this book if you want a deeper dive into medicine or human anatomy & physiology. If you're just interested in the human body, then this is a fantastic book!
