The human body is astounding. This book explains how our body works in images and texts that are created for children but are also fascinating for adults. Children are curious about their bodies. They not only want to know how they breathe and where their food goes after they swallow it, but are also generally interested in how their bodies look on the inside and everything that happens there. The children's book My Body takes its readers on a fun and compelling journey though the human body. Exploring our skeleton, how we breathe, where our blood flows, how we digest, our senses, our muscles, our nerves, and our brain, its chapters impart fundamental knowledge in a way that is understandable for children while also answering classic questions such as "what are hiccups?" and "why do baby teeth fall out?" My Body's vivid images and engaging texts make the book wonderfully suitable for children. It takes them on an intertaining anatomical adventure that responds to and further stimulates their own natural curiosity--the key to learning.
