Description

Original, imaginative, and boisterous: a look at the body inside and out for young children.


Here is a new take on the body book for young children, and it’s all about asking and answering questions: “Why is your blood red?” “How much does your hair grow?” A little girl named Koko asks questions that guide three intrepid explorers through the human body as they explore the many and varied functions that make it work.


Organized into twenty sections, this engaging book addresses a multitude of topics, from “Eating and Staying Healthy” to “My Skin” to “Babies.” A colorful combination of photographs and contemporary illustrations brings the text to life. The book also features a variety of things to do on and off the page, including games, recipes, and craft activities.

Praise For Head to Toe: My Body and How It Works

The offbeat graphics and play-focused style of learning give parents or teachers a variety of lively way to engage kids in the discussion of their bodies.

I think other people would enjoy it because it has fun hands on activities that encourage kids to learn more about how the human body works.

…examines the body inside and out.
