Actually, there is a book that we used for a neuroanatomy class of mine, an
undergrad school, that I think would be great for kids. It's a coloring book
of the human brain and extremely useful as a source, though it probably needs
a backup text or lecture type supplementary, cause there's not a lot of 
explanation in the book. It's called _The human brain coloring book_ by 
Diamond, Scheibel and Elson.
