This book encourages young children to stay active. It includes pictures of a skeleton, muscles, the lungs, the heart and blood vessels, the stomach and intestines, and the brain and nerves. It also informs children that the body needs air to breathe, food to eat, and water to drink in order to survive. The pictures in the book are very colorful and will capture the readers attention. The author also illustrates bone-building foods, energy foods, and muscle-building foods. This would be a great book for a physical education teacher to read to her students. ( )

Love, love, LOVE it!!!

This book teaches children the importance of exercise. It also teaches children how their bodies work by telling them about the various systems (digestive, cardiovascular, nervous, etc..) within the human body. It shows children how each of these systems contributes to a healthy body. Very, very cool!! I will be purchasing this one! ( )

This is a great book to teach children how to stay fit and healthy. It shows so many fun way to keep your body moving. I thought this was such a great book because the generation now forgot what it's like to play outside or do activities that are healthy for your body. Most of the children now are all about being on a computer or playing video games. ( )

A celebration of the amazing human machine and a life on the move!

Your amazing body can jump, sprint, twist, and twirl. Your body is built to move.

Lizzy Rockwell explains how your bones and muscles, heart and lungs, nerves and brain all work together to keep you on the go. Kids walk and skate and tumble through these pages with such exuberance that even sprouting couch potatoes will want to get up and bounce around—and that’s the ultimate goal. Studies show that American kids are becoming more sedentary and more overweight and that they carry these tendencies with them into adolescence and adulthood. Experts agree that we need to help kids make physical activity a life-long habit. Through education, information, and encouragement, this book aims to inspire a new generation of busy bodies!
