Join Sam and his mum as they talk about how our bodies grow in this friendly introduction to science at its simplest. Sam and his mum explain how our bodies grow in this friendly introduction to biology, illustrated by award-winning artist Katharine McEwen. Sam knows all about how our cells work, and, with a bit of help from his mum, he's going to tell you how they divide and multiply - and why we don't keep growing for ever! With fun, friendly pictures from Katharine McEwen, this book is perfect for five to eight year olds to read at home or share at school.


An excellent series. * Blackbird Pie *
