Human Body FactoryBook - 2012
A tour of the human body uses a factory metaphor to depict a CEO who dispatches orders from the brain while teams of busy workers endeavor to keep each "department" running smoothly.
Human anatomy has never been as entertaining as this look at a day in the busy human body factory. From the CEO sending out orders in the brain to "waste" being sorted and delivered out of the body at the other end, the busy workers who keep everything running smoothly introduce each ‘department.' All the major systems are covered, and the ingenious illustrations are packed with humorous details that kids will love to pore over. All of this amazing artwork is backed up with fascinating facts and clear explanations of the body's essential processes. Whether it's toxic signs and workers wearing biohazard suits in the large intestine, lab workers in dinghies mixing gastric juices in the stomach with a giant whisk, or park keepers on the skin keeping things clean among glades of gently swaying hairs and sweat-gland sprinklers, we promise that kids will never think about their bodies in the same way again.
An engaging "whistle-stop" tour of the human body uses a factory metaphor to depict a CEO who dispatches orders from the brain while teams of busy workers endeavor to keep each "department" running smoothly, from lab workers mixing gastric juices in the stomach to park keepers on the skin who use sweat-gland sprinklers.
