Editorial Reviews

Review

'Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells' - The Bookseller; 'It would be impossible to praise this series too highly' - The Bookseller; 'A super collection of information books from Usborne, which really engage the reader by providing interesting information, colourful graphics and plenty of flaps with yet more information' - Parents in Touch; 'A smart, fun, exciting, interactive introduction to what is arguably the most fascinating topic of scientific study, the human body. The flap panels encourage the reader to participate in the journey into the hidden wonders that our body has to offer, taking them deeper into the functionality and intricate detail of our tissues. With a perfect balance of scientific terminology and simplistic explanations of the various systems in our bodies, the young anatomist will find this book informative and stimulating. It's a superb introduction to the human body!' - Dr. Gemma Balmer --This text refers to an alternate Board book edition.

I was looking for a first body book with clear plastic pages to show body organs, and my local book store special ordered this book instead. Boy were we lucky! No plastic pages, but 7 beautifully designed cardboard pages with lift up flaps. As a Biologist, I love this book! It uses lots of correct terms like villi and alveoli, and some reasonablle ones like spit and windpipe. The pictures really give a sense of what goes where, and how things work. Each page covers an entire system such as eating and excreting, or bones and muscles.

Not every 4 year old will enjoy this book. But if yours is like ours and absorbs facts about dinosaurs and begs for nature shows instead of Barney, this hits the jackpot.

And the kicker is, it even has sturdy lift up flaps with additional facts. This lets even our 2 1/2 year old interact. He had such fun when we did muscles (they can only pull, never push - squeeze the biceps gently and lift the upper arm, squeeze the triceps and lower it) he showed big sister and she ran in to do that page herself.

It does help if you add your own words and interactions to the book's, especially for young children. But if you have a compulsive learner at home, this book will not insult his or her intelligence, while providing a grand and accurate first look inside.

I scoured the local library for a good beginner book on anatomy to introduce my 3 year old to how her body works. I wanted accuracy and great pictures. It is a great library, but the options just weren't there. The available books were either too simple or too wordy, and none of them had stellar illustrations. This book by Usborne is amazing! I think I have even learned a thing or two, and my 3 year old LOVES it. For that matter, so does her 2 year old sister. Who would have guessed that this would make anatomy so interesting. A word of caution, though. This book takes FOREVER to read (30 min++)! I am very impressed with the details in this book and the fact that it thoroughly explains such things as digestion, the cardiovascular system, the nervous system, the pulmonary system (lungs), and the bones, muscles, and 5 senses without getting boring.

I bought this book from an Usborne book representative at a social gathering organized by a friend. I thought the goals were cute and, as a science teacher, thought the level of detail was perfect for a primary school kid. The poo and pee parts were funny, too. When the book arrived, I realized the reproductive system had been entirely left out. What message are we sending kids about sexuality and reproduction if a basic science book can't address how babies, like their own brothers and sisters, have come to join us? I was pregnant at the time. My five year old wanted basic answers. I was really disturbed and disappointed. There are levels of detail which would have been entirely educative and appropriate for young folks. If you want to keep your kid in the dark about reproduction, this is the book for you!

We are an Usborne family and this is my son's favorite book hands down! He is so interested in learning how things work, why they work and the small details of EVERYTHING. He is simply intrigued with the human body and how it functions. This books is amazing, great explinations, easy to read and understand and best of all the flaps are sturdy. My son has learned so much and spouts off how the kidney and other organs work to people he meets, it's really quite comical.

I would reccomend it to any child and any reading level.

I have been an Amazon member since 1999, but this is my first review. Why am I finally writing one? Because this book is spectacular!

The book divides the major systems of the body into 2-page layouts with interesting flaps to open up and explore. (It's even interesting for adults.) Both my 4 and 2 year olds love the book and my 4 year old brought it to school to share with her friends.

I am such a big fan that now I buy one to bring to every birthday party I go to. (What a great alternative to plastic junk that will break or fall apart in two seconds). I have purchased 5 copies from the local bookstore; the reason I am here is because I need another copy and they're sold out at the moment.

Enjoy!

Yes, as others mentioned, the poop kind of steals the show. Agree with another reviewer that the complete urogenital system (including reproductive organs) should have been included, truly a stupid omission. If you are going to write an anatomy book (even for kids), be honest about it. If people are too pent up to want to keep their kids in the dark about their anatomy, then they won't buy education books about anatomy. Also... wish instead of "food pipe", esophagus was written there too (many of the anatomical parts are labeled similarly).... while I understand you don't want to bog a small child down with big words... by the time you explain to them, well it isn't really called a food pipe, it's an esophagus...you could have just taught them esophagus. No reason why they can't print the word and then in parentheses put a more descriptive term next to it... but calling it something it isn't is kind of a disservice to little ones trying to learn about anatomy.
