This copy of the book was sent to me for review purposes. I have received no compensation for this post.
Did you know that the language you speak affects the way you sneeze?
…that more than half of your body is made up of oxygen?
….humans can hold their breath for twenty minutes?
You would know all this and more if you owned 100 Things to Know About the Human Body. This entertaining book is full of bold colors, engaging illustrations, and fun facts about the human body. I have learned a ton from this book and I am 45 years old.
Very few kids will be able to resist this book. Full of easy-to-read facts about the body, there is no need to read cover to cover. Your kids can simply flip open a page and start reading. Apollo (10) grabbed this before bed last night and had a blast flipping through the pages and reading various facts to me. For example.
Did you know your body contains poison? That you have stones in your ears? That your skeleton will lose ninety-four bones as you age?
I bet you didn’t and I bet your kids don’t either. I have been a fan of Usborne books since my oldest was a toddler (she’s now 24). This book is a great addition to any home library. And if you don’t believe me, check out Gina’s review over at Oaxacaborn.com.

Lyrical Life Science: The Human Body I love this CD so much I sometimes listen to it while driving in my car alone.
