  • magazine article-style readings 
  • thought-provoking questions 
  • games and puzzles

More than Skin Deep is an excellent and well-written book that addresses the issue of ultraviolet radiation. It relates the effects of the sun on skin to genetics and skin coloration. Activities lead to better understanding of the use of sunscreen, polarization of sunglasses, and skin lightening. There are also readings and simulations of how to determine skin cancer risk. The book is easy to read and is well illustrated. It should be a part of every biology teacher’s classroom.

This book is part of a series of books developed by Miami University’s Terrific Science Press through a Science Education Partnership Award from the National Institutes of Health. Students and parents can use each book in the series to conduct simple at-home experiments to provide insight into health and safety issues. The books include a set of challenges and activities such as puzzles and art projects. Teachers could use these books as a source for ideas for classroom activities as well as for enrichment projects. It’s a shame these aren’t duplicator books, but the cost is low and a class set of the books is affordable. The series has its own website, and each book contains references and a bibliography.
