The Magic School Bus: Inside the Human Body
by Joanna Cole
Arnold has swallowed the Magic School Bus! Now, instead of seeing an exhibit of the human body at a museum, the class is taking a look at Arnold's stomach, his intestines, his bloodstream, and more from the inside on this heart-stopping fieldtrip -- one the reluctant Arnold would be happy to miss. Part of the Magic School Bus series.
by Tedd Arnold
First, his hair started falling out. Then skin started peeling from his toes. Some stuffing came out of his belly button, and a piece of something gray and wet -- his brain? -- fell out of his nose. Is this normal? Or is this boy coming unglued? With a perfect combination of humor and grossness, this look at one boy's farfetched fears will have readers laughing their heads off!
Two Eyes, A Nose and a Mouth
by Roberta Intrater
More than 100 vibrant, full-color photographs eloquently illustrate a wide variety of eyes, noses, and mouths on multi-generational, multi-cultural faces. A simple, rhyming text explores and celebrates our similarities and differences.
