How Is My Brain Like a Supercomputer?

How Is My Brain Like a Supercomputer? by Melissa Stewart

How Is My Brain Like a Supercomputer? And Other Questions About the Human Body by Melissa Stewart (Sterling, 2014)

This concise overview of the human body with colorful, textbook-like illustrations is a perfect blend of scientific detail and awe.

Covering how body systems work, Stewart explains what happens when an imbalance occurs and other facts, as if anticipating young readers' questions.

Photographs, high-magnification images, and cutaways provide context within a riveting reading experience.
