Reader Reviews

Cute & informative
Young kids can benefit from this even though it uses (and explains) a few vocabulary terms not used until later--such as "fibrin" and "capillaries." It's cute, though.

Scientific and charming
This book is actually very scientific and I find the graphics charming. Not an easy task considering the subject matter.

Critics' Reviews

The Tampa Tribune-Times
Some suggest that the perfect gift for 5-year-olds is a box of bandages, because they are preoccupied with bodies and their protection. This, then, is the best book to accompany that gift.

Booklist
As with other books in this series of Japanese imports, the topic has plenty of kid appeal, and the very grossness of the presentation just adds to the allure.
