Have you ever wondered what some of your body parts do? How many times a year your heart beats? How big your small intestines are? Which of your muscles looks most like a slug? Certain to appeal to elementary-school children, these thirty-four humorous, anatomically accurate poems explore the workings of our bodies with great verve and enthusiasm — and plenty of outrageous illustrations.
(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:19:00 -0400)
More than three dozen poems describe individual parts of the body and what they do for us and for some parts, such as the face, the verses describe how we communicate nonverbally with other people.
An edition of this book was published by Candlewick Press.
