This is a wonderful educational book which breaks down various concepts of the human body into simple, easy-to-understand text. Each page spread discusses one of the body’s systems, by covering the main functions of the relevant organs and walking the reader through a step-by-step process. What makes this book unique are the extra little side notes. The author uses these side notes to connect the concepts to everyday occurrences. For instance the first page, Eating & Excreting, discusses how the body processes food.

Technical: Your windpipe takes air to your lungs.

Side Note: If food goes down your windpipe by mistake, you cough to push it back up. (I use this line of my kids, when they are bouncing up and down at the dinner table.)

The illustrations are colorful, lively, and humorous. There are over 50 flaps which kids will love to look through and find nuggets of information. The book is a hardcover with board book type pages. There are only 15 pages but a kid could easily spend over a half hour pouring through the details.

Since the text and illustrations are quite detailed and the numerous flaps, this book is best suited for a classroom or home library.
