Inside Your Outside by Tish Rabe is about how each part of your body takes place. The book explains how your body is moving and how it never stops going. The cat in the hat, Thing 1, and Thing 2 explain some really interesting facts about how each part of the body each do something. One of the facts tell you that the left side of the brain helps you read and remember, while the right side of the brain helps you paint, sing, and play music. Throughout the book you will learn facts that you may ha ...more

Love it! It's like a recap from Biology class that I snoozed through in Junior High. Dr Seuss made it much more interesting to learn than my teacher.

I really enjoyed this book a lot. The authors, Tish Rabe and Aristides Ruiz recycle the "Cat In The Hat" characters to teach about the human body. The Cat in the Hat takes his friends through the “ “Inside your Outside Machine” to help them get a closer look of what goes on inside their bodies. The book does a very nice job of covering and providing great information about all the main systems of the body, like the brain, lunge, bones, muscles etc. All while keeping the language at a level appro ...more

This book would be ideal for 2nd-5th grade. It explains the functions of the inner workings of a human body. It is entertaining and easy to understand. I would use this book in the explain portion of a 5E lesson plan as it introduces vocabulary and new concepts that students wouldn't be able to figure out because... well, we can't actually poke and prod around inside of our bodies to figure out how things work. I'd also recommend this book as a resource for students to use when conducting resear ...more

My son is 4 years old. I purchased this book for him yesterday.
I hoped it would peak his interest of the way the human body works.
I was happily right!
The rhymes and ease of rhythms in the book help children's curiosity grow, regarding the human body and it's many purposes.
Some of the systems discussed in playful and educational terms are; The Brain and Nervous, Endocrine, Digestive, Bone and Muscular Anatomy and Circulatory Systems.
The five senses are also explored!
I would recommend this book f

This was such a wonderful Science Health book! This is teaching all about the human body in a way that isn't embarrassing, or the child know they are learning! My special needs adult son giggled his way through this story as I read it out loud to him. At the illustrations about Things 1 & 2 and Dr Seuss. The rhyming text makes it that much more fun. There is small bubbles that have extra facts that you can or don't have to read out loud giving extra information. Very well thought out informa ...more

This is a really good Health Science book, the grade level for this book would be best from 1st grade to 5th grade but a good read for all ages. The curriculum for this book is science and health science. There is no concern but I would suggest that you read the book when your child starts asking about there bodies. The Cat in Hat has a new experience in mind for Sally and Dick when he takes them on a ride through the human body.

Lexile Measure 660.

Accelerated Reading Level 3.7. The Cat in the Hat takes two kids on a ride through his Inside Your Outside machine. The children learn all about human anatomy (bones, muscles, organs). The text is written in Dr. Seuss style rhyming which makes it easy to follow.

This book is great for grades K-3 or any class learning about anatomy.

In this riveting sequel to the original Cat in the Hat, the Cat in the Hat explores human sexuality through a series of mildly pornagraphic scenes. The big surrise at the end...the Cat in the Hat has a 10" schlong.

Very interesting look at the human body via Dr. Seuss characters. It is super informative and opens the door for lots of discussion with young children about how their bodies work.

I liked it when Cat in the Hat told the girl and the boy about Feletons whose skeletons one can see when they stand in the sun.

Covers soooo much (and in rhythm!) everything from white blood cells to urine is cover in a fun, yet mature manner. Suggest you share with the kid in your life.
