Topics include bruises, scrapes, broken bones, sprains, stomach aches, earaches, sore throats and emotions.

My Achy Body is a wonderful resource for children interested in learning more about their bodies. It is engaging, well written and provides information that is appropriate for the suggested age group.
It covers how wounds heal, how disease spreads, and some medical information. It's very brief, but a great book for kids who are interested in the science inside themselves.
