Hey, kids, it's time to bone up on the human body! Discover the hidden secrets of the body using real X-rays in the cool new book, Amazing X-rays: The Human Body. Using the book's unique built-in light box, curious readers can clip on one of the 16 included acetate X-rays to examine close-up. They'll see the kinds of details real doctors see, and in the process, begin to understand human anatomy and the skeletal system. Throughout the colorful spreads in the book, junior radiologists will find engaging, entertaining text and a wealth of X-ray images, photographs, and illustrations to guide them in their studies.
