What makes your body work? Is it all in your mind? Sort of! Take a tour of the human body from head to toes and everything in between.

This latest installment in the Brainiac's series is an accessible, fun, and inclusive introduction to the human body. Full of funky facts and astounding activities, readers will discover all there is to know about the body and the brilliant brain that makes it all work.

Aimed at curious children who want to know how their body works and how their brain keeps it running every day, The Brainiac's Book of the Body and Brain answers both need-to-know and quirky questions about the bodies we live in.

This book is an exciting introduction to the often complex, sometimes gross, and completely fascinating functions of the human body. Featuring practical activities and easy self-experiments, including keeping a poop diary and optical illusions, the book explores what happens to the food we eat, how medicines can fool us into making us feel better, as well as how and why we dream.

Written with a zany sense of humor, and packed with facts and hands-on activities, the Brainiac's series is the perfect introduction to creative and accessible STEM topics.
