Picture-packed introduction to the human body.
This book is a bundle of colorful pages, large photographs and easy-to-read type that add up to fun learning. It addresses many of the questions a child will ask about his or her body: Where is my heart? How do I remember things? What are bones made of?
Close-up color photographs, cutaway diagrams and clear text make complex ideas easy to understand. Each spread also features an activity that reinforces a concept and encourages further learning.
The author efficiently covers a wide variety of topics. The chapter on the brain, for example, is divided into such sections as Senses, Quick as a Flash and Feelings. The chapter on the digestive system explains why we burp and features an activity that uses string to show how long the digestive system is.
Designed to be read alone or shared with friends or parents, My Body is a fun way to engage children's curiosity about the human body, particularly their own.
In this comprehensive and entertaining resource, David Macaulay
reveals the inner workings of the human body as only he could. In
order to present this complicated subject in an accurate and entertaining
way, he put in years of research. He sat in on anatomy classes, dissections,
and even reached inside the rib cages of two cadavers to compare
their spleen sizes. He observed numerous surgeries, including a
ten-hour procedure where a diseased pancreas was removed, as well as
one where a worn-out old knee was replaced by a brand new one. This
hands-on investigation gives Macaulay a unique perspective to lead his
readers on a visual journey through the workings of the human body.
The seven sections within the book take us from the cells that form
our foundation to the individual systems they build. Each beautifully
illustrated spread details different aspects of our complex structure,
explaining the function of each and offering up-close glimpses, unique
cross-sections and perspectives, and even a little humor along the way.
This one-of-a-kind book can serve as a reference for children, families,
teachers, and anyone who has questions about how his or her body
works. When readers see how David Macaulay builds a body and
explains the way it works, they will come away with a new appreciation
of the amazing world inside them.

Your face is a one-of-a-kind tool you use to communicate with the world. It's the first thing people see when they meet you, and it's what they use to recognize you later. On the outside, your face is what makes you, you. How much do you know about this important body part? Do you know why your features are arranged the way they are? Or how the idea of beauty differs from culture to culture? Here Donna M. Jackson, author of the acclaimed nonfiction picture book The Bone Detectives, answers these questions and presents funny, strange, and sometimes unbelievable facts about the face. Using the straightforward, journalistic style she's known for, Jackson explains the basics of our eyes, ears, mouths, and noses. Then she dives into topics ranging from unusual facial disorders to how a prosthetic eye is made. With 30 full-color photographs, a glossary, index, and detailed source notes, In Your Face is an intriguing and fresh tour of the face that will fascinate readers.
