The fun and whimsical poems in this book answer questions children (and even adults!) may have about their bodies: the organs inside, the medical instruments used by doctors, and a few diseases of concern. After each lighthearted verse there is a “Learn More” section on the page to further enlighten the reader, and a glossary is included in the back of the book.
