Interesting and educational. Discovering the secrets of their own body as children giggle through the pages. Unlike many other informational books about body science, this book series 可爱的身体 (kě ài dí shēn tǐ) is fun and easy to read!
Scientific concepts are explained in jargon-free stories. Adorable illustration, action packed stories and simple language explain what children are most fascinated about: themselves! What's in my poop? Why do I have a belly button? Why do I get a shot even though I am not sick?

"Read to me": Children as young as 3 will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.
"Read by myself": Although some pages have up to 11 lines of texts, they are short and conversational. The prevalence of common language from daily life makes this series ideal for beginning readers ages 5+.
