Synopses & Reviews
Discover the wonders of your body through this fun, informative guide!
This is an exploration of the human body, presented in an easy-to-understand format with the emphasis on fun. Each spread focuses on one of the body's vital parts or functions: hair and skin, eating and digestion, the heart. Amusing blurbs of text surround the central image, which replaces the actual body part with everyday items. In "All About Blood", train cars represent the blood, each carrying one of its vital elements -- food, oxygen and waste -- through veins and arteries, laid out as railroad tracks. Spreads also include a realistic, detailed drawing of the actual system or organ being discussed. Funny Bones is a great way to introduce young readers to the inner workings of their own bodies.
