Is your child fascinated with the way the human body works? Do you have a budding junior biologist or doctor who’s eager to learn more? DK Adventures: A Trip through the Body is a wonderful way to teach children about the human body through pictures and story. Through a combination of interesting storytelling and pictures, DK Adventures: A Trip through the Body is a great way for both avid readers and visual learners to learn more about the human body.
In this story, Dan and Mya win a science competition and are given the opportunity to experience a tour of the human body. Using exciting new technology that allows them to travel through the body as if they’re shrunk, they explore the systems of the human body, get propelled around by the blood stream, and are hurtled through windpipes and through the digestive system. They must navigate around the liver and escape from white blood cells in the bone marrow and into muscles. They’re even propelled up the spinal cord in this story that will captivate children while teaching them more about the human body.
