Absolutely wonderful, full-color, 8 1/2 x 12 inch book chalked full of colorful photos (drawings and real life) depicting every part of the human body (inside and out). There is an actual photo of a baby being delivered, explanations on how the body uses carbohydrates and so much more.

A valuable resource to answer medical questions!
