Book Nook: Illumanatomy

I recently had a chance to review Illumanatomy, which was different from any other anatomy books I've seen before. The closest I've seen is one of those clear-paged peel-back-the-layers kinds of books. This one allows three major systems to be seen in the same illustration - muscles, skeleton, and organs.

The artistry that went into this is amazing. By looking through each color on the included lens, readers can see intricately drawn pictures of what our insides look like, and get an idea of how they all fit together. After the three-color illustration, then there is a wealth of information about each section.

The book is family-friendly, and doesn't go into detail in the reproductive system, which can be good or bad depending on your viewpoint and the ages of your children. However, there is an amazing view of a baby in the womb, which was awesome. Even as adults, my husband and I enjoyed this book and the perspective it gave on the inner workings of the body.
