What's My Silly Body About

Publisher Summary

Kids, meet your body and learn how it works: My Silly Body unfolds into a life-size, interactive, die-cut figure that teaches the basics of the human body. P. Hanson offers a completely fresh, hands-on approach to engage children in just what it is that so fascinates them about their bodies—from the organs to the bones to the funny noises they make after eating too many beans. The Body. It’s a full-size, full-color illustrated cardboard cut-out with lift-and-learn flaps on one side that reveal the organs, bloodstream, nerves, and muscles. Here are the guts—heart, lungs, stomach, intestines—with captions that describe what each does. Here is the brain—lift the flap over the forehead and discover the master organ that controls everything from heartbeats (72 a minute) to learning ABCs. Flip the figure over, and it’s like looking at a perfect X ray—a complete 4-year-old skeleton, from skull to the small bones in the toes and fingers. The Book. Accompanying the body cut-out is a 64-page illustrated owner’s manual. Learn the mystery of the disappearing bones (babies are born with 300 bones, but have only 206 when they’re fully grown). And take a fascinating trip though the digestive system and find out why we really are what we eat.
