Young children are full of questions about how their bodies work. With straightforward, easy-to-understand language and a playful attitude, Liza Fromer and Francine Gerstein MD have collaborated to create books packed with solid information about the intricacies of the human body. Their reassuring text describes the body’s various systems and supplies parents and caregivers with answers that will help them provide the accurate, age-appropriate information young children need.
My Stretchy Body focuses on how we grow, which is, perhaps, the biggest mystery for children as they watch their bodies change. Learn about growth spurts, growing pains, growing hair, fingernails, and much more.
