This little illustrated booklet is planned for reading by children, or parents and children together, to help children understand their bodies. There are pages of large type that may be read by children alone. Alternating pages of small type containing more detailed information are designed for parents and children to read together. There are a number of simplified anatomic illustrations, which, on the whole, are good but contain a few errors; for example, the captions are reversed on the two illustrations that face page 12 dealing with reflex and feeling pain. In the illustration facing page 28, the clavicle is labeled "shoulder blade." Except for these errors, however, the content is accurately written and easily understandable. It can be recommended to parents of young children.
