Why is it important to chew your food? Can you guess how long it takes for food to travel through your body? Could you possibly have twenty feet of small intestines? Where does that bad-smelling gas come from? Your digestive system is out of sight and out of mind -- until things don't go right. Then you may wonder how these important organs work! You'll find the answers in Seymour Simon's smooth, well-organized, and fascinating introduction to the digestive system. He explains how it works twenty-four hours a day, turning pizza, sandwiches, milk, and other food into energy and nutrients and waste. Striking photographs on every spread show how major organs including the stomach and intestines move food through your body, and how, eventually, waste is eliminated. Guts takes the mystery out of something that happens to everyone, every day, while at the same time sharing a sense of wonder about the human body.… (més)

Informative book on the way that our digestive system works with great visuals and explanation. I’ve read books by this author when I was in grade school, and I definitely see the value for those in grades 4-9th as a starting point for research for presentations on the human body. ( )

Simon, S. (2005). Guts: our digestive system. New York, NY: HarperCollins.
Grades 4 through 6
Guts explains for the digestive system works. From the moment food gets chewed by teeth in the mouth to the moment it leaves as the unpleasant brown mass called feces, the book offers children a close look at one of the most important systems in the human body. There is a lot of text here, and the terminology can trip some readers, so it may take time from children to get through the book, but the effort will be well worth it. The illustrations will amaze readers—they are colorful, one-page images from colored X rays, computer-generated pictures, and microscopic photos enlarged to dazzle the audience. Each picture has a caption that clearly describes what is being seen.
Seymour Simon is well known for his work that makes Science accessible to children and has received the Washington Post-Children’s Book Guild Award for Nonfiction. Here, he offers the audience accurate and reliable information about a touchy subject—the guts—in a light-hearted and sometimes humorous way. Children will be fascinated—and a little grossed out—by the process through which the body digests food. Information is organized to follow the path of food as it travels through the digestive system, but Simon adds information here and there whenever a connection is possible. Science teachers will welcome this title in the classroom, but this book should not be restricted to the Science classroom. This is a great title to spark children’s curiosity, and parents and older siblings will also learn a lot with Guts. ( )

Simon uses wonderful illustrations to accompany his description of how our digestive system works. He lays everything out in a very understandable way. "The digestive system turns the truckload of sandwiches, milk, salads, and pizza that you eat each year into the energy your body needs." The literature is good, but what drags me to Seymour Simon are the illustrations he uses.
