Looking for science books to pair together?

Great for a STEM Friday post!

Pairing up The Case of the Flesh-Eating Bacteria with Learning About the Musculoskeletal System and the Skin gives readers the opportunity to read about skin diseases while also learning about the skin as a body system.

Both titles are written for the middle school reader, and give detailed explanations of what skin is, as well as what types of illnesses and diseases can be found on skin.
