Description

The ultimate kids' guide to the human body, with computer-generated 3-D imagery that shows them the body as they've never seen it before, from the award-winning publisher of Knowledge Encyclopedia.

This visual encyclopedia includes astonishing, all-new 3-D artworks, offering a fascinating view of every part of the body from the skull to the heart and lungs to the joints and muscles, taking kids from head to toe. Supporting STEM education initiatives, all the body systems and structures are made easy to understand. Both the anatomy—how the body looks—and the physiology—how the body works—are visualized and explained with clear, engaging text, and the astonishing facts and figures revealed will keep young readers hooked on Human Body!

With its bold visual approach, Human Body! is the perfect family reference on this subject.
