Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a great source of information about the body with an enormous number of activities to help little children discover their bodies. It's a wonderful resource for teachers and parents of children ages 3-6 to promote self-discovery." - Children's Book Review Service, Inc., New York

"Each activity is accompanied by a step-by-step guide, things you will need, and ideas on expanding the activity. The book opens with extremely brief discussions of the integration of science with children and offers sound advice." - Young Children

"... designed for an age group often ignored in elementary science. I highly recommend this book for the primary grades." - Science and Children
