Summary

Detailed, scientifically accurate color illustrations are complemented with a lively text that explains the many ways a typical healthy child's body functions at different times of a typical day. The book's narrative depicts a child waking up in the morning, eating breakfast and digesting food, using the body's muscles to ride a bike, and performing the many normal activities that make up a child's average day. In describing the activities, the book shows and explains the workings of the child's brain and nervous system, the respiratory system, the heart and cardiovascular system, the skeletal system, and other vital functions. Kids learn the importance of good nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate sleep. They'll also find answers to important questions that deal with visits to a doctor's office, getting sick and recovering, and growing up to adulthood. More than 200 photos and illustrations are all in color.
