Picture-packed introduction to the human body.

This book is a bundle of colorful pages, large photographs and easy-to-read type that add up to fun learning. It addresses many of the questions a child will ask about his or her body: Where is my heart? How do I remember things? What are bones made of?

Close-up color photographs, cutaway diagrams and clear text make complex ideas easy to understand. Each spread also features an activity that reinforces a concept and encourages further learning.

The author efficiently covers a wide variety of topics. The chapter on the brain, for example, is divided into such sections as Senses, Quick as a Flash! and Feelings. The chapter on the digestive system explains why we burp and features an activity that uses string to show how long the digestive system is.

Designed to be read alone or shared with friends or parents, My Body is a fun way to engage children's curiosity about the human body, particularly their own.
