Human Movement

National Science Teachers Association Recommends
"A completely engaging narrative connecting cells, tissues, organs, and body systems to diverse fields beyond biology ranging from physics to energy transfer. The text is a unique combination of comic inserts, textual information, factual sidebars, vocab and inquiry labs, as well as QR codes linking the reader immediately to additional research information, games, and videos."

School Library Journal
"This compact psychology book focuses on the science of human behavior, with an emphasis on issues relevant to teens. The text looks at how the brain plays a role in human behavior and how this knowledge can help readers "stay emotionally healthy." Overall, Rubini handles the intricacies of the complex subject matter admirably. . . Copious sidebars provide additional details and questions for deeper discussion, as well as multimedia content accessible via QR codes. Bright cartoon art in each chapter adds a lighter element to the subject matter. VERDICT Recommended for larger teen collections, particularly school libraries and collections where curricular support for students studying psychology is desired."
