Look Inside Your Body -- A Lift-the-Flap Book Review


Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Looking to add some STEM to your collection of children's books? Or do you have a child who is always asking about parts of the body? Today I am sharing with you the latest version of Look Inside Your Body by Louie Stowell and illustrated by Kate Leake. It is a lift the flap board book and recommended for ages five and older. 

From the Publisher:

From brains and blood to senses and skin – children will love exploring the ins-and-outs of the human body with this fantastic interactive book.
Young readers’ minds will boggle as they learn about how their brains work, what happens when they eat, how their lungs use oxygen and much more.
Full of surprises to keep enquiring minds entertained, including flaps beneath flaps and a cheeky peek inside a toilet cubicle.

From Me:

This is a fun nonfiction book. I love that there flaps under the flaps and expect young kids to love it! It is fourteen pages full of information about every aspect of the human body. It labels part of the body on the outside and then has flaps upon flaps to see the various layers (muscles, skeleton, brain, etc.). It talks about eating and digesting food as well as a bit about what happens when you eat something that upsets your stomach. It takes you through the digestive system to where it comes out in the bathroom. It goes through the idea of breathing and the lungs and hearts. It explains a bit about what the doctor is checking when they do things like touch your wrist. Then it goes into the importance of our bones and muscles. And of course it has a page on the brain (see picture above). It discusses your senses. It ends with information about growing and healing and some fun body facts. 

I love that the people in the book are multicultural. There are different genders, races and ages. It is full of useful information to get a child learning about their own bodies as well as being a fun book with all the flaps to lift up and learn more. It is perfect to read at home or use in a class to introduce studying the body. It is a book kids are sure to love. I hope you will check it out!
