PreSchool-Grade 2–Twenty science activities help to answer questions students might have. With the assistance of adults, they can learn how much air they take in when they breathe, what makes a stomach ache, why their teeth are different shapes, and more. Abundant cartoon illustrations show kids of different races having the best time participating in the experiments. Anthropomorphic teeth, dogs, etc., convey a fun feel. This chipper title starts off with a list of safety dos and don'ts and an introduction that compares the human body to a car. Extra information is offered in Did You Know? paragraphs; youngsters can learn, for example, that everyone has about 25 trillion red blood cells. This title is similar to Janice VanCleave's Play and Find Out about the Human Body
(Wiley, 1998); it has fewer, but some of the same, activities and is more colorfully illustrated.–Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
