Part of the Learning in Action series, this interactive pop-up book focuses on the systems of the body. Pushing a button causes the heart on the cover to visibly and audibly beat, while a heart monitor lights up. In the first section, on reproduction and human development, a pop-up infant emerges to the sound of crying. Readers can pull away sections of a brain to reveal clear, straightforward information about the cerebrum and thalamus, and can fold back a lung to learn about breathing. Ages 8–up. (Oct.)
