School Librarian’s Workshop, "Noteworth Nonfiction: Body Language - Hilda K. Weisburg

"Young fact lovers will be delighted with this collection of 101 facts about the human body. The first fact in the opening chapter on “Your Body Up Close” reveals your body is composed of numerous metals, water and “enough fat to make about seven bars of soap.” Readers find out about sweat, acne myths, and unwanted hair in “How Embarrassing,” and “What’s Going on Down There?” offers explanations of various concerns about puberty including “twisted testicle” and female weight gain around hips and stomach. The final fact in the last chapter, “Beyond Belief,” reports that a study of a rowing team found those who exercised together were able to handle twice the discomfort and pain as those who trained alone. Endorphins are the reason. The book concludes with a bibliography, webliography, a list of topic to research, and an index. Fact boxes, quizzes, and loads of illustrations add to the interest." - School Librarian’s Workshop, "Noteworth Nonfiction: Body Language

School Library Journal - Robin Henry, Wakeland High School, Frisco, TX

"These two books offer light, friendly, and accessible approaches to health topics that tweens and teens care about. . . .Most similar series are dry, but these titles are colorful, conversational, and extremely teen centered. Quizzes and “Top Ten Tips” lists make them particularly helpful, though the format is more suitable for browsing than for research. Solid offerings." - School Library Journal

Omaha Public Schools - Kelly Arbuckle

"101 Things is a series that explores different topics of interest to teens. In this edition the author is exploring things about the human body that are not general knowledge. The facts that are discussed are numbered and there are diagrams and pictures on each page to help with the understanding of the information that is given. Some of the topics covered include why we have body odor, what gas is, and if we are shorter in the morning when we wake up. This is a fun way to learn about the human body and is a quick read. This would also be a good book for beginning research. –Kelly Arbuckle, McMillan School Omaha Public Schools 3/12/2013" - Omaha Public Schools
