Okay, you may be wondering what "gustation" means. It's the ability or process of tasting. And Bill Kirk's new book in his The Sum of Our Parts series is an especially delicious one.
As in the other books in the series, the scientific information is presented in an amusing way with lots of rhymes. The amusing illustrations by Eugene Ruble add to the fun of reading it.
the book is intended for Middle Grade kids, ages eight to thirteen,
it's not very long and the rhymes could be read aloud to younger
In my opinion every school should have all
the books in Kirk's The Sum of Our Parts series in its library because they'll teach kids a lot about human bodies and even reluctant readers will find
them interesting. The scientific vocabulary is a bit difficult for kids who can't read well, though.
I've reviewed several of his other books in the series on this blog
before and you can see those posts here:
