Young children are full of questions about how their bodies work. With straightforward, easy-to-understand language and a playful attitude, Liza Fromer and Francine Gerstein MD have collaborated to create books packed with solid information about the intricacies of the human body. Their reassuring text describes the body's various systems and supplies parents and caregivers with answers that will help them provide the accurate, age-appropriate information young children need.
My Messy Body is about the sometimes yucky functions of the body: why are vomit, puss, and snot sometimes good for us? and yes, pee and poo are also on the list
