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.

Format: Hardcover
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.

We are huge Dr. Seuss fans, and these modern-day adaptations are so clever. They take the rhyming patterns and characters from the classic Seuss books and turn them into educational books on nearly every topic. I think by now we have almost every book in the very large set. We've learned about the human body, the desert, horses, sea life. You name it, this series covers it. I learn almost as much as my kids when we read them together. We literally have hundreds of books in our home library, but these are the only books my 5 yr old and 7 yr old want to read.

We bought this for our 4 year old son after he showed an interest in skeletons. It's a great book with wonderful rhymes. I was most impressed when after one reading he came to me out of the blue and told me about blood pumping through the heart and that our brains help us think - it sticks - and the interest keeps growing. It is very basic, but enough to peak an interest in how your insides work.

A participator (who had a librarian parent) introduced me to this book and I'm so grateful! This is such a great intro and/or wrap up to a body systems unit for primary students. It's written in the expected rhyming style and packs A LOT of valuable information in an entertaining book. This book, and ensuing discussion, took all of a 30 minute lesson. I will be using this book annually!

My 3.5 year old son LOVES this book! He asked us to read it three times the first night we had it, and insisted on bringing it to preschool the next day for his teachers to read to the class. He told us that the other kids enjoyed it too. :-)

I love that it appears scientifically accurate without being overwhelming to preschoolers. It is also not too long to read a couple of times before bed in addition to a couple of other bedtime books.
