A close-up look at the body's largest organ, this resource presents simple-to-understand information for young readers. Colorful and informative pictures complement and enhance the text and foster visual learning. The lively text explains why there are different skin textures, tones, and pigmentation, how the skin works, how we can protect it, and how the skin protects itself. Think About It, Compare and Contrast, and Vocabulary boxes also get readers to think more deeply about the text, while highlighting and defining more difficult terms.
