The Great Big Body Book

by Mary Hoffman
illustrated by Ros Asquith

Ref: 2628

Early science knowledge with muscle and heart. Another hefty slice of non-fiction joy from Hoffman and Asquith. This time, it's all about our bodies. This is a celebration of everybody and every body: the characteristics we share, the things which make us different; what makes up a body; where our biggest muscle is (bottoms!); how our bodies grow; how to keep our bodies fit and perky; why so many people feel the need to ask, 'Is it a boy or a girl?' etc. etc. There is even due reference to people who do not feel comfortable with the labels 'boy' and 'girl'. Inclusive and diverse as always, Asquith sets about putting everyone into the picture- including a wider range of disabled characters. 'Comprehensive, informative, funny, inclusive in every way and on every page' (Meryl, EY Consultant & Trainer, Letterbox reviewer).
