Random Body Parts: Gross Anatomy Riddles in Verse
Let’s see. How could one go about getting kids interested in science, specifically anatomy, and poetry? That can’t be an easy assignment, yet author Leslie Bulion and illustrator Mike Lowery took on this task and came up with the answer: You use riddling poems full of outrageous humor and lots of gross word images interspersed with short bursts of facts written with lively language and full of interesting evidence; illustrate it all with really silly drawings and occasional photographs. This short book will have kids reading, sharing, and laughing. All the while they will be learning, but that can be our little secret. This is a really fresh way to get kids thinking and working ideas out for themselves. In addition to the clever riddling poems and educational sidebars, there is good back matter that includes a very complete glossary of the body part terms covered by the poems, a silly drawing of human anatomy, and a good explanation of the forms and inspiration for each of the poems. Middle-grade readers will love this book, and parents and teachers will as well.
