The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a typically informative and cleverly designed book from Wide Eyed Editions, one of our leading new publishers of non-fiction. Over 16 spreads, it asks 100 questions about the human body, from what are my bones made of, to why do I have a spleen, to what does my brain look like. The answers are often hidden behind flaps – there are 70 of these - for example you can open up the heart to examine what’s on the inside, and peep inside the eye. The flaps make this a fun, interactive reading experience as well as an informative one. ~ Andrea Reece


Life on Earth: Human Body by Heather Alexander

How many bones do I have in my body? What does my heart do? And why do we breathe? Find out in this fact-filled book, the first in a new non-fiction series for children aged 5+. Each book answers 100 questions in a simple and informative way, and has more than 70 lift-flaps to open.

Part of Life on Earth, a key new series for children 3-5 from Wide Eyed Editions.


Fully illustrated in bright colours, the simple but informative pictures are perfect for this age group

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
