Huff and Puff, Ticker, Cognos, Squirt, Gurgle, and Flex and Strut will engage children of almost any age – including adults – in the informal education of how the human body works. These characters are known as “Body Buddies”, and along with the pictures, this full-color addition to Slim Goodbody’s series is not only educational without seeming so, but is just a fun read. The author has taken complex information and reduced it to a simplified form. Included in this book is a fun review, amazing facts, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Mr. Burstein (aka Slim Goodbody) knows what he is doing and how to get his message across. As I said, this book is part of a series, I recommend you get them all – your children will not be bored, and neither will you! The entire series would be an excellent addition to elementary classrooms.
