Young Genius is a bright little boy who escorts children through the pages of this amusing and instructive color-illustrated book. Kids will discover answers to many interesting questions about their brains. For example: How can you look at your brain without taking it out of your head? Where do headaches come from? What is imagination? Does having a big brain make you more clever? Young Genius books explain different parts of the human body to children, showing and telling kids how each part works. In each book, Young Genius also talks about nourishing foods to help keep those body parts in great condition, and he asks questions that will prompt boys and girls to giggle--but also to get a clearer understanding of how their bodies function. The language is easy enough for children in early grades to understand, and the information is sound and reliable. One illustration in each book features tabs for kids to lift, look, and better understand how their bodies work. Cartoon-style color illustrations on every page.
