The body is an amazing thing. Made up of different systems that handle many functions, it runs like a machine. But what are these systems, and how do they operate?

Body introduces children to the anatomy and physiology of the human body. The circulatory system, the respiratory system, the digestive system, the skeletal system, the muscular system, and the immune system are all explained in kid-friendly terminology, showing how each works and cooperates with the other systems. Important organs like the brain, the eye, the ear, and the heart are also discussed in detail. Many illustrations are done in pop-up format to show the layers of the organs or the body structure.

Anatomy and physiology are very complicated subjects, but this book gives enough information on how things work without going into details kids wouldn’t be able to comprehend. A good basis in body functions, Body is a solid reference book, and would make a great addition to any school classroom or library.
