LoveReading View on Humanatomy

The human body is amazing, ‘the most incredible machine on Earth’ says this book, which explains exactly how it works, from the inside out. Over colourful, clearly designed pages, featuring detailed illustrations, it peels back the layers of the human body to examine the individual body systems, from the integumentary system (skin, hair and nails), through the muscular system, skeletal system, digestive system, right up to and including DNA, in a chapter What makes me who I am? Questions are asked throughout in fact, making it highly interactive and engaging, and some of them provoke the response, ‘Yuk’ (Is it true you can drink your own urine). With a neat reference guide to the body tucked inside the front cover, and useful glossary at the back, this book is well thought out and informative from beginning to end.
