“your body”
I love this book so much that I have taken it to bed with me every night for the past two years. It is now helping me to understand how my little brother is growing in my mummies tummy.
“I have not put the book down”
I love this book, I have looked at it again and again. The best book I have. It answered all my questions and more. Thank you Usborne! (Age 4)
“Your Body”
I thought the book was very good. My favourite part of the book was the page on hearing. I also liked learning about eating food.
“Your Body”
I thought this book was really great. It was easy to read and easy to follow the pictures. I really liked finding out where my food went and how long it took to pass through my entire body. I think the book is good because if you break one of your bones you can see where it is in the pictures. (I am age 7)
