A young narrator guides readers through a tour of the human body, including parts of the human body that can be seen and parts that cannot. She explains how different parts of her body work--like her skin, brain, heart, stomach, bones, muscles, etc.
The text is written in
kid-friendly explanations and language (ie: saying her heart is "like my
own little engine.") And the illustrations are as educational and informative as the text. They're kid friendly while still being scientifically sound. :)

Below is a sample spread from inside this book. In this spread, the young narrator thinks about how her body is going to keep growing and then imagines herself at different older ages in life. This spread is fairly representative of the amount of text on the pages and the difficulty level of the body concepts that are covered.
