"Here Are My Hands" by Bill Martin Jr. is a great book to read to kids to help them learn about their body. Bill Martin Jr. is famous for using rhyming in his books and he does it in a fun way to help the kids learn about their body. He does a great job at incorporating all kinds of races, genders, nationalities, etc. This is not exactly a deep thought provoking book but it will absolutely get the children to learn what each body part does.

"Here Are My Hands" by Bill Martin Jr. is a great book to read to kids to help them learn about their body parts and functions they take. The author uses rhyming patterns to describe what each body part can do. The illustrations are of boys and girls of different races and nationalities. The diverse illustrations and easy to read, rhyming pattern is what makes this book so wonderful for children. This book can be read to children and they can interact with the reading by showing the suggested body part and explaining what it can do. For example, on the first page, the book states, "Here are my hands for catching and throwing." Then on the second page the book states, "Here are my feet for stopping and growing." I would have my students show me the body part being discussed and have them give other examples of what that body part can do. ( )

The sing song rhyme format makes it fun to read (especially over and over again and again) the teacher can play a game where you say, "Here are my... " and the students hold up their hands and then the teacher finishes the phrase. ( )
