Human Body Lift-the-Flap (Lift the Flaps)
This book is about the systems of the human body, and it uses lift-the-flap to explain how things work. Some parts of your body are always working, even when you’re asleep! Your brain is the control center of your body. The weird thing about your brain is that each side of your brain controls the opposite side of your body. Messages travel through nerve cells called neurons. There isn’t much your brain can’t do. You would not be able to do anything without bones and muscles either. Muscles pull on your bones in pairs to help you move. Your smallest bone, the hammer bone, is in your ear! Your heart never rests; it sends blood to the lungs on a circuit that loops throughout your body. Your lungs take in air, and vocal cords help you talk. A muscle called the diaphragm helps you to breathe. The book also covers the digestive system, the senses, and your skin.
This book would be good for kids age four to ten who are interested in how their bodies work. The words might be too hard for younger kids, and the flaps might annoy older kids. I liked this book because I like learning cool stuff!
