Two that my daughter (nearly five) adores and goes back to again and again are See Inside Your Body by Katie Daynes (£8.99) and The Flip-Flap Body Book (£7.99, both Usborne). The first is fairly detailed, and it covers eating, excreting, bones, muscles and the senses and has lift-up flaps. It’s really good for learning about food and what happens to it. You can read out the simpler bits and go into more details as she gets older. If you were to buy just one book for her that would be right for her now and last for a couple more years, this would be my recommendation. The Flip-Flap Body Book covers food and digestion, the sense and how babies are made in a very basic fashion (note: each of these topics is the subject of a separate book that goes into more detail and costs £4.99) but it’s very accessible and aimed at young children.

See inside your body review
I bought this book for my little girl who was asking a lot of questions about the body that I didn't know how to explain to her in a way she would understand. This book is fantastic!! I can't say a bad word about it. It's a great way to have fun with your child whilst they learn. Even my 2 yr old son sits down with us whilst we read and he's picked up quite a lot of info. I would highly reccomend this book to any parent and even school children to read themselves. For 9.99 you can't complain, money well spent I say.

See Inside Your Body
This book is excellent for all ages, gives a really good insight to a human body and the colourful way the book shows this is good.

Absolutely fantastic. My daughter, Hollie age 3, thinks this book is fascinating, really interested in every page, especially lift-up flaps.

Wonderful Learning Book
I recently purchased this book for my 4 yr old. She had been asking a lot of questions that I could not answer, so I purchased the book after looking through it a bit. It has wonderful illustrations that are easy to understand, and the interactive flaps are fun to lift up. I find it so much easier now to describe things to her, with help from this book! Thank you!

See inside your body book review
this is a super book for the inquisitive child. there is enough easy english to encourage new readers to have a go themselves, and enough of the harder words to keep the older ones (and adults) interested. the colours are great and the flaps prove irresistible to small fingers. the topics covered are sensible and appealing to the young audience e.g. eating & excreting, and the section on breathing (pictures of healthy & unhealthy lungs) get the no smoking message across without even seeming to try. the book has proved well worth the price in our household. we have had it over a year now, it is extremely well thumbed but the flaps are holding up very well. thank you.
