My Health

Human beings suffer from a lot of minor ailments. Even as a kid, most of us are acquainted at an early age with colds, earaches, rashes, cavities, bug bites, broken bones, and all kinds of cuts and scrapes! However, even though it's easy to see the result, it's hard to know the why's behind it. Kids are naturally curious about these things like, how do cuts heal? Why does my skin get all red? Why do I need to go outside and burn off some energy? All of these are simple questions with not-to-simple answers that most of us would have a difficult time explaining in detail. But, never fear - these engaging and very interesting books have done that job, and very well, too! Each of these 48-page books delves into a common health topic that often affects, of has affected kids at some point or another. Their burning questions are answered through a series of chapters, explaining different aspects of the ailment. Each chapter breaks down the chapter question and explains it through easy-to-read, large print text, and an excellent array of visuals, including photos, cartoons, and photos of microscopic objects. I love the fact that the series is well-written and doesn't dumb down the subject for kids - just explains the details so they understand. Suggested activities, a glossary, other related books and resources, and an index are also included. Kids will find these topics at least as fascinating as that scab on their elbow they just can't stop messing with! - Jess
