Books | How it Works: The Body by Amelia Hepworth


A very first look inside your body!

The human body is an amazing machine!

Take a look inside and learn all about how it works with this fantastic layered die-cut board book.

Simple callouts, such as "hair," "ear," "arm," and "bones," invite even the youngest reader to explore the workings of the human body. Topics covered include the movements of our body parts, the five senses, the way in which blood flows through the body, the internal organs that the human body contains, and the different types of bones that are found throughout the body.

Packed with fun facts and accessible information, this first introduction to our bodies is perfect for the youngest children.
