Learning About the Nervous System

Series: Learning About the Human Body Systems

By Martha V. Gold

The nervous system is made up of the brain, the spinal cord and nerves. It is responsible for telling the heart to beat, the lungs to breathe, and the muscles to move. The brain—the central command center—processes everything from understanding a teacher’s instructions to enjoying a piece of chocolate cake. Discover more about how this remarkable system controls virtually every part of the human body.

Richardson Independent School District, April 30, 2014

". . . a good resource for readers studying the nervous system or preparing a report on it."

Book Buzz, September 2013

". . . each title also contains a chapter on possible diseases, etc., plus another chapter that gives hints about how to keep the system healthy. Readers will enjoy 'amazing but true' facts. Full-color anatomically accurate labeled diagrams complement the text."

Library Media Connection, January/February 2014

"Gold has done a nice job of making the text interested, accurate and age appropriate. The information is deep enough without being overwhelming."

Eastern Washington Book Review Council

"It would be suitable for older elementary and younger middle school children writing reports on the different systems in the human body."
