The Exciting Endocrine System: How do my glands work?

Common Core, Suggested Works Grade Four, Informational Texts, Nonfiction Books, page 257 -- Common Core Curriculum-English, Grades K-5, 2nd Edition, pub 2014 “This series could well be the backbone of a six-week unit on the human body in intermediate grades. The physiology is well-founded and clear, the presentation is appealing, and there is just enough detail to make it interesting without overburdening students with details...Burstein’s long experience in teaching children about their bodies shows up well in this series. He makes it look easy.” —National Science Teacher's Association, 04/09
