Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K--This installment in the series appears at first glance to be a useful overview of the human body. However, while the text flows in a pleasant Seuss-like way and the colorful artwork will please fans of The Cat in the Hat, some of the information is just plain wrong. For example, the statement that there are "soft bones in your nose" is incorrect; the nose is actually made up of cartilage. In another section, the text asserts that "in our stomachs there's food we ate three days ago." Food generally passes through the stomach in a matter of hours; it may take days to eliminate from the body, but the stomach empties relatively quickly. The heart is described as the biggest muscle in the body, but the gluteus maximus is actually the largest. For a better treatment of the subject for beginning readers, try Shelley Rotner and Stephen Calcagnino's The Body Book (Orchard, 2000) or Barbara Seuling's From Head to Toe (Holiday, 2002).--Christine A.

I really enjoyed this book a lot. Like many other books in this series, Tish Rabe and Aristides Ruiz recycle the "Cat In The Hat" characters to teach a specific non-fiction topic. In this case, the subject at hand is the human body. They do a very nice job of covering all the main systems of the body, at a level appropriate for the target audience.
Ruiz' illustrations are spot-on replicas of what Seuss himself would have done. Rabe's narration is quite good, but just a tad below the master's work - granted, her hands are tied a bit by the subject matter.
In summary, I took off one star, since it doesn't quite read like a Seuss book, but the book is still highly recommended.

I purchased three books from this series. My 7 year old Granddaughter loves them, and I am relearning things that I have forgotten. She entertains both her Dad and myself with all the facts she's learning. I am going to purchase all of the rest of the series. Really great books.

The reason I don't give this book a higher rating is a few scientific inaccuracies. For instance, the brain is shown as grey, not pink. It also says that food stays in the stomach for days. In a healthy person the food goes through the entire digestive in about 24 hours.
It irks me when books for children, especially science books, have such mistakes. It would be so easy to edit out these inaccuracies. There is no excuse for such carelessness.

As with almost all Dr Seuss titles, he masterfully takes a college level subject and puts it into a kindergartner's world. He does so without leaving out or dumbing dumb- amazing. And as always the language is engaging through the rhyme and cadence. Added bonus is that it encourages my new reader to read on her own as well.

My 2 year old just loves this book. It's very creative and every time I flip a page I touch the part of the body where everything is and he loves it (tickles him too). He loves looking at the skeletons and the bones (Feletons are his favorites), then asks to see the "big muscle, Heart" and the "balloons" (aka lungs), the spinal cord and the brain. I'm amazed he knows all these words but the book makes it so much fun for him and every page keeps him very interested. We love it.

My 4 year old daughter loves the book so much. She went through it by herself fisrt and then asked me to read it for her. This is great visulisation for my hard-to-understand answers for her questions before. It has become her 'most-wanted' before going to bed.

We have a couple of others from this series adn I can't say enough good things about them. I like the educational content and the rhyming keeps my girls (5 & 3) engaged. They ask questions about the content which prompts more discussion and learning. I would recommend this and the others in the series as good nin-fiction, educational reading for young children. We also have the seashore and bug ones.....
