This is a story about a boy who is losing his 'parts.' He is coming apart piece by piece and must try to figure out how and why.

This is a story that would be perfect for 1st-2nd grade. It talks about a little boy who is experiencing different things happening to his body and doesn't know what's happening, but everything is completely normal. This would be a great addition to my classroom that talks about understanding your body while including rhyming. This could be used to help a health lesson, the possibilities are endless. ( )

This book tells a story of a boy who is going through changes in his body but is scared that he is falling apart! This also shows children that their bodies are constantly changing but it is completely normal! I love this book! Perfect for a 2nd grade class as a way to introduce figurative language or even go with a rhyming lesson! A class discussion could be made over what type of rhyme scheme is happening in the book, and if its in first, 2nd or 3rd person. The children can then have a chance to write their own short poem.

This book about a young boy and various things are happening to his body and he thinks he is falling apart, but in reality it is all normal. This would be a great tool in showing kids about the random things that may be happening to their body and that it is completely natural.

In the silly book, "Parts" is about a young boy who is discovering things are happening to his body. Whether it was his tooth falling out or something coming out of his nose, he becomes very confused with his life. This is show children the awful truth about their body and why its doing the things that it does. I like this story because it is a cute and fun way for young children to learn about their body. The drawings are very creatively drawn to make it colorful to capture the readers attention.
In my classroom this would make for fun activities. During like health month we could read this and make a drawing of themselves with this that happen to them. This can give them an explanation of why things happen the way they do. We could also talk about things that are healthy for their bodies and learn the body parts.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140565337, Paperback)

First, his hair started falling out. Then skin started peeling from his toes. Some stuffing came out of his belly button, and a piece of something gray and wet-his brain?-fell out of his nose. Is this normal? Or is this boy coming unglued? With a perfect combination of humor and grossness, this look at one boy's farfetched fears will have readers laughing their heads off!

"A zany, ultimately reassuring take on something that may indeed be a child's bugaboo." -Booklist
