    "This is a great book that can be used to educate children about various aspects of the body. It focuses on calamities that can happen to the body, such as bee stings, viruses, and cuts. Through this emphasis on bodily harm the book teaches about how infections happen and how the body deals with them, and readers also learn about things such as white blood cells and their function in the body.

    "A Seed Is Sleepy is a beautifully illustrated children's book that communicates an anthropomorphized view of plant seeds to children. The book is likely a little too verbose for very young children, but would be good for a child in kindergarten or first grade. I really enjoyed reading it with my niece, who was about 6 when we read it."
