Asking questions and discovering how and why things work are often the starting points of any scientific inquiry. For children, many initial questions are often centered on the human body. Why do we eat? What organs help me breath? Why don’t I have to tell my heart to beat, yet I tell my feet to move? This Lerner series presents information for intermediate readers to answer these questions and many others about systems of the body….an interactive text that will delight!”
