Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Booklist

... energetic illustrations with playful, multicultural children, eight double-page spreads cover such general topics as bones and muscles, the heart, lungs, skin, nutrients and waste, and the senses. The text is broken up into small, easily digestible nuggets of information with glossary words highlighted in bold. . . . What little hands will appreciate most, however, are opening the related flaps that feature additional facts and illustrations. . . . Thick, sturdy board-book-type pages ensure enjoyment from multiple readers.

Kirkus Reviews
2014-02-12
A lift-the-flap board book briefly explores the anatomy and physiology of the human body. With just 16 somewhat busy pages, this is hardly an in-depth examination of the body. Each page features a brief bit of introductory text. The first spread is a general overview, and those that follow examine different functions or parts: the brain, muscles and skeleton, circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system, senses and, finally, the skin. Most pages feature lots of lively, round-eyed children of various races and both sexes; they include two or three flaps to lift that provide an interior view of a body part and are accompanied by related text. A few are a little confusing. One depicts and describes arteries in red and veins in blue but fails to clarify that these aren't the actual colors within the body. Another states, "Every hour, you take in enough air to fill almost 45 balloons," and shows a child blowing up a balloon, but that is about one quarter of the actual amount of air breathed in. A greater issue is the format; the apparent audience of young grade schoolers may not all appreciate a cardboard-paged, rounded-corner format that's typically appropriate for much younger children. Still, anatomy books for this age are scarce, and this one is relatively sturdy and amusing to browse, perhaps compensating for its other issues. (Informational picture book. 5-8)
