"An outstanding book. . . . Meets the needs of those in-between or curious kids who are not ready, developmentally or emotionally, for IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL." -- BOOKLIST (starred review)
How does a baby begin? What makes a baby male or female? How is a baby born? Children have plenty of questions about reproduction and babies -- and about sex and sexuality, too. IT'S SO AMAZING provides the answers -- with fun, accurate, comic-book-style artwork and a clear, lively text that reflects elementary-school children's interest in how things work, while giving them a healthy understanding of their bodies. Created by the author and illustrator of IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL, this forthright and funny book -- newly updated for its fifth anniversary -- covers similar territory but with an eye toward younger children's concerns.
Here are the basic facts about the complex and amazing machine that is the human body. Hundreds of practical, safe experiments help the whole family learn by doing. An educational and entertaining way to learn the secrets of the body.
There is a wonder and magic to childhood. We don't realize it at the time, of course . . . yet the adults in our lives do. They encourage us to see things in the stars, to find joy in colors and laughter as we play.
But what happens when that special someone who encourages such wonder and magic is no longer around? We can hide, we can place our heart in a bottle and grow up . . . or we can find another special someone who understands the magic. And we can encourage them to see things in the stars, find joy among colors and laughter as they play.
Oliver Jeffers delivers a remarkable book, a touching and resonant tale reminiscent of The Giving Tree that will speak to the hearts of children and parents alike.
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.
