We love to read!
As we’re finishing up the Big Book of Why and our ritual of reading two pages every night, we have decided to dive into our next book a little early.
Explore the Human Body by Luann Colombo is educational, interesting, and well-made. The 3-D human body visual is perfect for referencing each of the major systems discussed throughout the book. The language is easy to follow, even for kids younger than 8 years old (listed range). V is 4.5 years old and he was able to understand a majority of it. There were a few words he was unsure of, but it was a great learning opportunity to add onto his budding vocabulary.
There is quite a bit of information in this book, so V and I decided it was best we learn only one system each night (1-2 pages). More than that would be information overload, and that too, right before bedtime.
I’m having fun getting refreshed on human anatomy along with my little munchkin. Oh, how I have always loved this subject. If you want to know more about my career choices and why I did not end up in the field of medicine, you can peruse through my musings on Elephant Journal.
Anyway, I picked up our copy from Costco back in December (grabbed the last copy!), however, it looks like it is available for pre-order on Amazon.com. You can secure your copy at the link below:
