Book review: Random Body Parts
Random Body Parts is an upcoming kids book with funny poems about different body parts. Leslie Bulion’s poems combined with Mike Lowery’s artwork make each page a fun introduction to the purpose of your organs.
“Three boats sail / Along the river of life – / A sticky situation” starts the poem about blood, referencing the three types of blood cells and flow of blood through the body. All poems are a bit cryptic like this, but are accompanied by notes explaining the science.
Many of the poems are inspired by famous Shakespeare works, and a section at the back of the book has more information about poetry and Shakespeare.
Overall, this should be a fun book for kids to learn about the biology of various parts of the human body – and pick up some poetry along the way!
Random Body Parts will be out later this year, expected March 2015.
