the amazing human body detectives

Lately Anya has been asking a lot of questions about the human body and how it works.  Her questions were becoming more and more involved and I didn’t have the answers.  But she was really curious to know more so I did what I always do – I went looking for a book.  I didn’t want a really serious book with anatomical diagrams which would be boring and too complex for a 6 year old but most of the books I came across were like this.  So I continued looking and then I found The Amazing Human Body Detectives.

best human body books for kids

The Amazing Human Body Detectives is a fab little book packed with interesting facts about the body.  The facts are shared in a fun and engaging way and the drawings are also playful and colourful.  Each double page spread focuses on one part of the body so you have spreads on the brain, teeth and bone, muscles and many more. There are facts as well as myths which are all shown in bite-size chunks so it’s easy for kids to read by themselves.  The book comes with a mini magnifying glass and then suggests ways in which a child can use it. There is also an interactive side where the book suggests experimenting with things like tasting food while holding your nose or looking inside your mouth and seeing what’s in there.

Ever since we’ve had the book, Anya picks it up and reads out lots of interesting facts to me like a ‘sneeze releases 100,000 germs in to the air’ and ‘only 2% of the world population has green eyes’.  Lots of these facts have fascinated me too as I didn’t know them and so I’ve really enjoyed this book too.  Even if your child hasn’t shown much interest in the human body, I think The Amazing Human Body Detectives is a great little book to have on your shelf.  It’s perfect for 5-7 year olds as they can read it themselves and then come and tell you all that they’ve found out!
