Keeping Me Healthy: My Body and What it Needs

In this book, readers will get the chance to learn about their bodies – like scientists! From basic information, such as body part names, to discovering the important work carried out by our heart, lungs and blood. Our bodies are amazing “machines”, so we must take good care of them. Why is it important to drink enough water? What foods should we eat every day? Why is exercise important? And why should we wash our hands, brush our teeth and get plenty of sleep?
