Summary
Kids can learn all about how their bodies work in an engaging, understandable new way, thanks to this unique illustrated handbook. Each page bursts with colorful infographics that explore the complex mechanism that is our body. Beginning with a timeline of human evolution, the book goes one by one through our cells, brain, skeleton, muscles, skin, blood, heart, lungs, digestive system, sight, hearing, smell, taste, reproduction, and genetics. Throughout, comparisons of humans to animals-- for example, we have the same number of hairs as a chimpanzee-- plus fun facts about our most bizarre characteristics make science accessible and entertaining
