    1. Eye How It Works was an outstanding READ!Readers of all ages will enjoy learning how the eye works and learning how the eye is more than just an eye.Author Macaulay did a fantastic job in explaining how everything in the eye works in relation to the eye and the brain. Eye How It Works was not only an informative read but a fun read and the illustrations made the story come to life! Non-readers will enjoy looking at the illustrations while being read to and will probably wear out whomever is read [...]


    2. I like how it takes the context of learning about the eye ball into a relatable scenario for kids like playing soccer. It helps to bring some life into what can be a bit heavier information for young readers. This is a great book to introduce the eye to elementary kids.



    3. One of the newer trends in publishing for children seems to be the focus (no pun intended here) on the emergent reader and the simplifying of complex topics. Macauley has joined the ranks with "My Readers" with titles 'Castle', 'Jet Planes', and the apparently ever-popular topic, 'Toilet'. In my fifteen+ years of elementary school librarianship, I've had one request for toilets, and even that was for its predecessor, the water closet. As for this book, it begins with a joke on the title page con [...]


    4. I liked this one better than Macaulay's Toilet: How It Works (see my review on that one). Still some gripes, though… LABELS ARE PRETTY GOOD, BUT on page 7, the eye “socket” is not labeled and this is Macaulay’s intro to how the body protects the eye – “good thing each eye is protected by its own socket. “Fat” in the next sentence and “sclera” and “muscles” in the following sentences are labeled. LAYOUT AND DESIGN MIGHT BE CONFUSING. On page 10, the text refers to the imag [...]


    5. Macaulay is now doing a series of nonfiction books for about the grade 3-4 group. This one was on the eye and was fairly good. Of course, the illustrations are superb! The text is pretty good too, framed around a soccer game to make it a bit more relevant to kids. There was almost no effort given to the game which makes sense in a way since that wasn't what the book was about, but more could have been done to tie it in to the theme, I was disappointed in one section where a description of how gl [...]


    6. David Macaulay's brought his amazingly detailed illustrations and carefully cultivated science to a series of science books for early elementary readers.Through the course of a soccer game, kids are shown how our eyes are constructed and how they process images and light. Really great introduction, would be fun to read along with a parent or in a classroom to help kids understand the concepts. Early elementary.


    7. Eye: How It Works is a straightforward book for young readers that reveals the components of the human eye in a clear, easy-to-understand manner. The text is not preachy. You can hear David Macauley's authoritative voice as you follow the narrative. A glossary, index and a list of supplementary reading resources complements completes the book. Recommended!


    8. You can't always believe a blurb, but I'm gonna say Macaulay has totally earned the "master explainer" title. I'm very impressed by his ability to take a complicated subject and break it down into understandable parts for young readers. The illustrations are great, too. I highly recommend this whole series!


    9. Eye – How It Works by David Macaulay - Love how this book is connected with playing soccer, quite appealing to reluctant readers. Beautiful illustrations in addition to thorough information on how the eye works. Terrific book, happy it is a reader now.


    10. Hopping back and forth between the soccer game and how the eye of one player was perceiving it was a good idea but for this age & ability reader, it did not work - in my opinion.


    11. I like how this book gave both information about the eye and also a story that connected to the eye and made it easy to connect to.
