This colorful and eye catching book provides all kinds of wonderful information about skin and the many properties and purposes it has. It explains everything from why our skin is colored to its ability to stretch and the mulitiple layer composition.

This book is definately written for a pre-school to 1st grade level. The pictures are of very young children and the text is large and colorful to keep their attention. The pages are packed full of all kinds of wonderful information about skin, but

The "zig zag" style of reading is hard to follow. I guess you're supposed to read the big words in sequence - then go back and read the little blurbs? Trying to read everything on one page got confusing and somewhat frustrating. Good pictures, good information.
