Summary

Summary

How long does food stay in your body? Why does your stomach rumble when you're hungry? Why should you eat vegetables? Everything you do uses energy you get from food. Read this book to understand how food is digested, the reasons we get sick to our stomachs, and why some foods are better for us than others.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Two volumes that explain common health issues. In the first title, various aspects of digestion are described, including types of teeth, how food travels through the body, why we get thirsty, rumbling tummies, and, of most interest to young readers, vomiting. In Itch? allergies are described in many manifestations-watery eyes, itchy skin, hay fever, food allergies, eczema, and even migraines. Both books present factual information in a simple yet accurate way. The numerous illustrations are useful in explaining anatomical structures, and the colorful photos depicting children of various races and ethnic backgrounds are helpful in demonstrating various treatments and symptoms.-Christine A.
