Overview

Scholastic Discover More is a revolutionary new nonfiction line pairing stunning print books with corresponding interactive digital books that extend the learning online.

MY BODY unlocks a free 16-page digital companion book offering even more information, photos, and videos!

MY BODY answers children’s questions about their own bodies in an incredibly simple and appropriate way. Each spread is focused on a particular part of the body or movement a child understands. Body actions such as breathing, the food journey, and blood are touched on, as well as fun subjects such as hiccups, earwax, and goosebumps. The simple text is perfect for beginning readers. The photographs provide impact for children less interested in reading with big, bright pictures of the inside and outside of the body.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
In this visually engaging introduction to the human body for early elementary school students (kindergarten through second grade), children are given an overview of their bodies from the outside in: hair, skin, bones, muscles, brain, lungs, blood, stomach, intestines, sense organs (ears, eyes, nose, tongue), nutrition, growth, and general health. Each spread has a photograph of a child with a diagram of the relevant organ (e.g., the lungs) superimposed upon it. Large-font, bold-faced text gives the most important fact on the page—"You breathe air to get the oxygen your body needs" and "Breathing out gets rid of waste your body doesn't need"—while smaller-font, less-obtrusive text fills in interesting further details for more advanced readers such as, "You breathe about 18,000 times a day!" and "Try breathing into a mirror. It mists up because your breath is warm and wet." The abundance of smiling photographs creates the impression that the kids on the page are sharing their enthusiasm about their bodies with the kids reading the book. Printed on stiff, sturdy paper to stand up to extensive classroom use, this makes for a pleasing package. A free digital book with "extra fun activities" is also available for download on the Scholastic website. Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.
