ForeWord Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
This book begins with a Before You Were Born page "when the man puts a tiny seed, called a sperm, in the woman's belly," (no picture) and ends with an artist's picture of a child's skeleton. Be prepared for Birth Day with mom propped up in a hospital bed, her legs spread wide covered with a blue sheet. Then pull down a flap that brings out from under the blanket a tiny baby with a long cord of skin seeming to come from between mom's legs. On the following page, called Growing Up, the same pull-tab makes a young boy's legs grow longer. Looking through a sheet of clear plastic you can see an illustration of blood circulation and, on another page, there is a push and pull demonstration of food passing through the mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestines and if you pull the tab "It comes out of your body as poop!" Another pull-tab illustrates the lung expanding when a deep breath is taken. A large tooth flap can be lifted to reveal the inside of a healthy tooth. The last set of three side-by-side flaps reveal skin and bones, the circulatory system, muscles, and the digestive track in simple, not scientific, drawings for both girls and boys. Originally published in France, this book should be examined before purchase to assure it fits your expectations. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich

Growing Up
Your body changes a lot as you grow up! It keeps growing taller and changing shape until you are about twenty years old.

Some adults don't grow to be very tall. Others are huge. How tall you grow depends on what size your parents and grandparents are. Most likely you will be about as tall as they are.

Between birth and your second birthday, you grow very quickly. Then your growth slows down. Around age twelve, you start growing quickly again. Your muscles get bigger and your bones grow bigger and longer. Pull to see...

Your body works hard at night when you're asleep. It's growing!

All through childhood you are growing and changing. Pull the tabs to see how each age is different.
