Overview

Take a free-form trip though the human body with these humorous riddle poems.
Which body part, if spread out flat, would cover a tennis court? Stretched end to end, which body parts would wrap four times around the equator? What’s the hardest substance in the human body?
In these pages you will discover the astonishing answers to these questions —and many more! Put your cerebral cortex to work. Follow the anatomical, poetic, and visual clues to make a guess, then read the science notes to check your powers of riddle reasoning. You’ll even find hints from the greatest poet of them all —William Shakespeare!

Random Body Parts is a great book that teaches you about the human anatomy in fun poem form. Each page contains a poem about the body and then facts about that body part. How many times does your heart muscle contract every day? How much does your brain weigh? Read the book to find out. Random Body Parts is a unique book because it isn’t like any book that I have ever read before! I highly recommend this book to readers who are trying to find a good book or want to learn more about the human anatomy. Review by Scott W., age 9, Central South Carolina Mensa
