Jessica's X-ray by Pat ZontaFeaturing six real x-rays printed on transparent pages, this is a unique and fun look inside our bodies and the world of x-rays written by a professional x-ray technologist who has worked extensively with children. In the book, young readers follow Jessica - who has broken her arm - as she tours her local hospital seeing x-ray rooms and looking at actual x-ray, CAT-scan, MRI and ultrasound images, she is posed questions about the images which the reader has to try and answer:; Hand; Wrist; Skull & Brain; Baby in the Womb; Eyes & Nose; Teeth & Jaw; These real x-ray images are printed on acetate - authentic x-ray film bound into the book - so readers can see first hand what Jessica sees. An identification key at the end of the book also helps kids pick out bones and muscles on their own.
