5.0 out of 5 stars The Body Book by Claire Rayner 30 July 2006
This is a really informative book, without going into too much graphic detail, making it incredibly useful in helping explain bodily functions to children.

I have found it invaluable with my five year old son and we often refer to it when he asks us "tricky" questions about his body. It's also useful to know how much information is appropriate for his age.

We would definitely recommend it to friends to help with their children, and have even given it to parents we know as a gift when their child reaches a suitably inquisitive age!

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational 17 Nov 2008
By Mrs. T
A family friend bought me this book when I was a little girl. I am now 33 with a 7-year-old daughter. I still have the original book and find it very easy to read it and explain the body parts to my daughter. We used it the other day to do her school homework as she had to write a report on bones and the skeleton.
It is a fantastic book with great pictures and very clearly explains the body and it's functions. Would recommend to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best thing since sliced bread 17 Mar 2008
By Paul
I grew up with this book from around aged five, in the early 80s, and it's possibly unsurpassed as the best blend of information and education without glorifying or grossing out any aspect of the physical and emotioanl changes we go through in the most confusing years of our lives.

This is without doubt a book that will sit on my kids bookshelves!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely a must ! 2 Nov 2009
By Lorri
I was recommended this book by a child physchologist for my 9 year old son who has been suffering from anxiety which led to him worrying about illnesses and other issues to do with the body

I read this to him ; a new chapter every night (we left out the making babies chapter for when he is a bit older) and I must say it is a fantastic book for kids to understand bodily functions, from poohing to breathing to hearing !! It talks to you in a really informative but simple manner and I myself thoroughly enjoyed reading it with him and it has really helped his worries....

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 7 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase
This book is quite old now but all of the info in it is as relevant as it was when the book was originally published. The information is delivered in a clear and easy-to-understand way, including pages about sex and death. Well recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent resource 9 Aug 2010
I grew up with this book as a child, and have bought it to use with my own children. It is especially good when having to answer questions regarding sex as it explains it in simple terms, allowing the parent to elaborate as much as is necessary. Some other books I have seen do not provide this opportunity as they can be too detailed or cause unending questions, and are not suitable for younger children.
All in all a fantastic book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 24 July 2011
Really good book. My mum bought it for me when I was ten years old and I am 30 now. It explains the human body in the most simplest terms especially for the younger generation. Hence the reason why I bought it fir my 9 year old son. He was asking so many questions that I couldn't answer simplistically. I highly recommend this book

5.0 out of 5 stars The Body Book 13 Nov 2010
I had this book as a child and remember if fondly, as a teenager I quite often used it for reference purposes for homework assignments. Now my children are starting to ask questions and a fruitless search of my loft did not uncover The Body Book. As I knew that it was no longer in print I held little hope of finding one. However, Amazon came up trumps I am now in possession of this wonderful book and feel fully prepared to talk my children through everything with the aid of this marvellous book at my side. I highly recommend this for anyone approaching that "stage" it is helpful informative but approaches everything in a charming straightforward clear manner. The illustrations are colorful and appealing to children. An all round great book.
