Children have all sorts of questions about their bodies and the 50 questions and answers here cover most of the bases without getting into things like sex which is probably a topic more appropriate for older children anyhow. Questions range from Why do I blink? to Why do I burp? and How do my arms and legs bend? to Why do I sometimes get out of breath?. Did you know… boxes on each page have more information about each topic, too.
The book is formatted in a way that you can start with whatever questions interest your child. You can read them all at once, or one at a time. There is a “Quick-Quiz” with 25 questions at the back of the book. You might use this to see how much information your child retained.

Read with a 7-year-old girl.
Buy. This is an excellent resource for parents when the inevitable questions about body function and movement come up. Teachers and home schooling parents will find this very valuable.
My friend used this with her daughter, who found it interesting.
I thought this format with questions and answers was excellent.
Good content, cartoon art draws in the child, excellent way of covering material about the human body.
