Here's the most entertaining way for children to learn how the human body works: 28 fun and instructive, ready-to-color illustrations that explore the muscular, skeletal, nervous, digestive, respiratory, and immune systems. Kids will discover how their voice box works, how many bones they have, how thousands of -tasters- on their tongues help them distinguish flavors, how the DNA in their cells is different from everyone else's, and so much more. Filled with astonishing details, this head-to-toe survey of the body is fascinating to read and fun to color.
