Showing what's inside the human body and how things fit and work together, the Human Body Encyclopedia is packed with fascinating facts and spectacular close-up photographs that make the subject accessible and fun. Covering every part of the body-from major body systems to individual cells-in language accessible to young children, this book is an inspiring new edition to the First Reference series and a valuable teaching aid for parents and teachers.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
Review of DK First Human Body Encyclopedia
Posted 2/5/2013 by Kay Koch
The book is EXCELLENT. It is full of accurate, interesting information and written in such a way as to capture the minds of both child and adult. The book has made the rounds of ALL the family - not just the birthday boy.
Wonderful illustrations, great text, very informative. Each subject has a 2pg spread with short paragraphs to go along with each illustration. Had to read through the entire book with my 5 year old daughter...on Christmas day with plenty of other toys around. Be prepared for plenty of questions!

This is more for me than for my kids. They are still very young (3, 2, and 7 months) but there are lots of questions. This is a great reference with fabulous pictures to help them understand whatever bodily function has caught their attention today. Very helpful
