"Your Brain: The Engine to Your Body" by Tracy Markley is the kids' edition to learning about one of the most important organs in the human body - the brain. The information begins as the equivalent of upper-level biology or anatomy of the brain classes with what makes up the brain - neurons, the synaptic cleft, dopamine/transmitters, endorphins, and 80% water. The information is sure to fascinate kids when they read, partly due to the strange shape of neurons and the brain, and also because of how powerful our brain is. Many aspects of maintaining a healthy brain are discussed, including hydration, nutrition, and outside influences. Markley does well with presenting such complicated and important aspects of the human body to children, while students currently in the upper-level classes are likely struggling to understand it all; it is likely that this book should be a condensed version for students of all ages to read.
