Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Human anatomy with a beat. Not so much an independent work as a hardcover illustrated lyrics sheet for the accompanying CD, this features the verses to a dozen catchy, mid-tempo songs printed opposite simply drawn scenes of sunny-faced, active-looking children, mostly at play. The topics range from teeth to bones, breathing to passing gas (this last tactfully evoked on the CD with a kazoo), and the writing is as clunky as lyrics sans music usually are: "So don't get embarrassed, / No need to feel shy. / Since everyone does it, / And now you know why." Though arrangements for the songs are not included, four labeled body diagrams, with a scattering of random facts alongside, provide a few morsels of additional information to close. An unusual way to introduce the topic-but the CD is the only part of this that stands alone. (Picture book. 6-8)

    Catchy tunes that are fun for grown ups, too!

    This is a terrific set that our kids love. And we do, too. The songs speak in real language to kids about the workings of the body. The information is accurate and truthful, with a good dose of humor and silliness. The songs are full of great rhythm for dancing, and are written in many different styles of music. The combo book and CD set are a worthwhile purchase-- more than you would normally get for the price. This is great for my family, and great in my practice with kids as a creative arts therapist.

    Librarian's Choice

    'My Bodyworks' is an excellent choice for elementary school librarians to include in their collections for K-3rd grade. What a fun way for young children to get to know about bones, muscles and heart and a great resource for school health programs. I recently donated a copy to a local school library and the teachers and kids just loved it. It is a wonderful gift for cool grandparents to give their grandchildren as I did.
