Fun introduction to the human body Jun 2, 2008
I saw this book in the library and ended up buying a copy. We used it as part of an ongoing series of classes about the human body for kindergartners. It is great for this age group and younger, but probably too babyish for anything beyond kindergarten.

I loved the book and enjoyed reading it to my grandson. He seemed interested also. He is 2 1/2 yrs. old. My son, his father, seems to think that some of the pictures in it should be a boy as well as girl.
informative but creepy Mar 19, 2007
At the moment my 5 year old daughter is fascinated with the workings of the body - she says she wants to be a surgeon! I got this for her, and it does contains lots of basic and informative information about human anatomy and the systems that run the body. My only complaint, and it is a pretty big one, is that the illustrations actually creep me out. My daughter does not voice this opinion, but she was reserved in her reaction to the book. The illustrations are supposed to look like a child has drawn them with crayon, but they are presented as drawings of the very same girl who narrates the book, but she is missing her face, or her face is part skull, etc. It just struck me as a bit jarring, and I'll be interested to look at other books for the same age group on this topic. Also, the reproductive system is conveniently skipped, which would be of enormous interest to the kids, but force the folks to have a longer bed time story!

This is a great starting place to explain in 3D the connection between bones, muscles and blood. We were disappointed that it did not have the sex organs for both F and M.
My Daughter (Age 3) Loves This Book Jul 3, 2006
I never tire of reading this book with my daughter. Me and My Amazing Body has inspired many conversations about the human body and health. It is simple, educational and the illustrations are great.
