Explaining that humans can feel both physical pain and emotional pain, My Achy Body explains how our body and our brain process physical pain. The remaining chapters offer clear explanations of how and why we bruise, why scrapes are sometimes more painful than cuts, the purpose of scabs and how they form, how a child's fractured bone is different from that of an adult, symptoms of strains and sprains, why we get stomach aches, earaches and sore throats. Thoughtful, age-appropriate explanations and interesting facts will help children understand why we experience physical pain and ways to alleviate our symptoms.
