Bodies are fascinating to babies and toddlers as they gradually learn what each part is called, how it works and what it can help them to do. Here are lots of bright pictures showing young children using different parts of their anatomy, such as the mouth, eyes, nose, ears and hands. Clear annotations show various features, from external ones such as arms, eyelashes and fingernails, to internal ones like bones, teeth and (open wide!) the tongue. The simple, lively text encourages reading skills and interactive questioning - what makes you sneeze, are your eyes blue or brown, and do you draw with your right hand or your left hand? It includes pages about animals, whose bodies can do different things, such as a monkey's long tail for balance and a seagull's feathery wings for flight. It is developed with the advice of expert consultants, this first words and picture book will delight babies and young children, who will love looking at it, either with a grown-up or by themselves. Experts agree that preschool children respond more immediately to photographs than to illustrations. This chunky boardbook is visually appealing, designed for preschoolers to enjoy and to learn from.
It is full of fun images of youngsters just like them using their bodies to talk, eat, smile, sniff, sneeze, dance, hop, skip, and much more. Readers will discover what the parts of the body are for, and how they can vary in appearance. Devised with the help of educational experts, this series combines lively, simple text with bold, bright photographs to promote the development of literacy skills. The images are carefully grouped into visual and subject patterns, such as animal bodies, various limb actions and all the things the mouth can do. This encourages young readers to make connections, and to see how different things develop, work and link together.
