A book about the most interesting thing on earth--you!
What happens to food after you eat it? Why is your blood red? How do your bones grow?
Your body is an amazing machine. Every second of the day and night--without you even knowing it--your body is busily working to keep you running smoothly. When you think about how complicated the human body is and how little goes wrong, it is really an incredible feat! So how does your body do it all?

Bones, joints, and other things you shouldn't break
