The Quest to Digest Review by Stephanie, Chelsea, and Ryan Scarborough

The Quest to Digest presents the human digestion process from start to finish in a funny yet factual manner. As my children sat on the couch reading to each other, you could see the information was being "digested" as they laughed and smiled. It has been proven that we learn better when we are enjoying the learning process. When I asked probing questions after the reading, both children were able to answer--plus they elaborated and giggled some more.

Chelsea said that she liked the funny captions. "I'm really glad that we get to keep this book and enjoy it for many days to come."

Ryan added, "I hope Mary Corcoran writes more body system books like this one. An idea would be the circulatory system."

Both children gave the book two thumbs up!
