Here's a lively, easy-to-read, easy-to-use introduction to anatomy by the author and illustrator of the popular Me on the Map and Me and My Place in Space. The young narrator begins with the body parts we can see -- skin, eyes, nose, etc. -- and then shows what amazing parts are hidden underneath the skin.How many bones hold up the body? What makes the body move? How does the brain tell the rest of the body what to do? Part by part, fact by fact, each major part of the body is clearly and simply explained, including what it does and how it works. Colorful, detailed illustrations show where each part of the body is located. And an amusing, amazing body fact section is included at the very end. Unlike most books about anatomy, which are complex and geared toward older children, Me and My Amazing Body allows the youngest readers to discover just how amazing their bodies are!
