    "This book is a wonderful resource in teaching a child about how the human body works and interacts with each other part of the body. It has wonderful drawings and a great description of each bodily system and even the skeletal system. It shows how we work to children on a simple and straight forward level and provides the chance to make learning about the human body an interesting and fun task."

    "This is a great children's book to learn about bodily functions but in my opinion it goes into a little too much detail for my 7 year old. I'm not saying that it is a bad or misinformed book however, I just think that not all 7 year olds are ready to go into this much detail about where babies come from. If ou have an emotionally mature child then this would be no problem for them."

    "This is an engaging and fascinating look at what makes the human skeleton different from - as well as the same as - animal skeletons. It's so much fun that young readers won't even realize how educational it is! A great way to teach about the bones that make up the body."

    "Going to rate this book as a "5" without even having to look much further. 106 reviewers on Amazon agree with me. The Magic School Bus series of books and television shows are kid-friendly, informing children of facts that can be hard to explain even to an adult. The illustrations in this book are hypnotic to the point where a kid will stare until the point of the picture sinks in automatically. This book really does belong to this category of "best children's picture books about the human body"."
