The Human Body: Lift the Flap and Learn
The Human Body: Lift the Flap and Learn

This past Christmas, I was on a quest to find a preschool friendly human body book for Juliet. She is very curious and was asking a lot of biology-related questions at the time that could only be answered with some drawings and diagrams.

We've found several great books, but so far, this one is our favorite. I think the interactive elements make it very intriguing to a preschooler.

There are flaps and tabs that reveal bones, muscles, lungs, etc. There is even a page that lets you slide a piece of food all the way through the digestive system--starting at the beginning and finishing at the END. Seriously.

I also like the page that gives a very simple explanation of human reproduction resulting with an illustration of a mother on a hospital table (covered in a blanket) and a pull tab that lets you pull a newborn baby out complete with umbilical cord! (We needed this about 9 months ago when I was  pregnant with Lucia.)

Juliet was so fascinated with this book, she took it to bed with her for several nights. If you have a curious preschooler on your hands, this book is a great resource.

Do you have a favorite human body book to recommend?

Disclosure: Owl Kids provided me with a review copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this post are entirely mine.
