Cole, Joanna. You Can't Smell a Flower With Your Ear! : All About Your 5 Senses. Demco Media Inc (May 1994)

Ages 6-10
ISBN: 0606068953

From Booklist
     Cole's lively text, with examples drawn from daily life, presents some quite complicated scientific information about how the five senses work. Smith's line-and-watercolor cartoons add to the fun even as they help explain the physiology. There are simple diagrams of the eye, ear, nose, and tongue, and explanations about how nerves "like wires" carry messages to the brain. Experiments encourage kids to "try this" and discover, for example, how the sense of taste gets a lot of help from the sense of smell. Words like molecules are no longer intimidating when they describe how the smell of pizza enters your nostrils. Hazel Rochman.

Cole, Joanna, Bruce Degen (Illustrator). The Magic School Bus Explores the Senses. Scholastic Paperbacks (September 1, 2001)

Ages 5-10
ISBN: 0590446983

From School Library Journal
     When Ms. Frizzle drives away from school before receiving an important message, Mr. Wilde, the new assistant principal, hops behind the wheel of the Magic School Bus to catch her. The class jumps aboard, too, knowing full well that only the Friz can handle the bus. When Mr. Wilde flips a mysterious switch, the vehicle shrinks and lands in a police officer's eye, then a child's ear, a dog's nose, and, finally, Ms. Frizzle's mouth as she eats pizza with her mother ("We'd been chewed out by teachers before, but this was ridiculous"). The format is comfortably familiar with text boxes and dialogue balloons complementing the story. Degen's illustrations are just as exciting and exacting as usual. Another fun, fact-filled adventure in the series.Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.
