PreS-Gr 2-In this delightful concept book, a girl gives readers a guided tour of her "amazing body," illustrated with colorful cartoon art. The child talks about the parts of the body that she can see, but mostly about those she can't. She describes the functions of her skin, bones, muscles, brain, blood, heart, lungs, and stomach in an engaging and accessible way. For example, when discussing muscles, the girl states that, "They stretch and shrink like rubber bands." She says that her heart is "like my own little engine." The book ends with the affirmation that while everyone's body is similar, each individual is unique. A page of "Amazing Body Facts" is appended. The drawings are scientifically sound and well incorporated into the picture-book format. An informative and enjoyable title.-Susan Knell, Pittsburg State University, Pittsburg, KS Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
