I liked this a great book teaches children about what their body parts are for. Younger children are always wanting to learn new things. I thought that is one was great pictures and the words and sentences were easier enough for children to understand.

This book displayed a lot of diversity including a variety of races. This book will also allow a lesson on body parts to be taught. ( )

This book displayed a lot of diversity including a variety of races. This book will also allow a lesson on body parts to be taught. This book is geared towards younger children. It can allow them to use their creativity, too. There is rhyming in the book that teaches poetry. ( )

Colorful illustrations and a catchy rhyming text help young readers learn the different parts of the body. Each page, accompanied by a charming illustration, names a body part and an action. Each of the children depicted represents a different race, nationality, or group, allowing the young reader to experience the similarity that connects children everywhere.

Highly recommended. ( )
