Twenty years old and still going strong, The Bare Naked Book remains a favorite family introduction to the human body.There is nothing more ordinary and more special than the human body. After all, everybody has one, and for all the parts that are the same each comes in a different shape and size. The Bare Naked Book joyfully celebrates this wonderful ordinariness with a matter-of-fact introduction for toddlers to the parts of the body.From hair (dripping, straight, curly, and tangled) to toes (stamping, ticklish, skinny, and squishy) and the private bits in between, Kathy Stinson's playfully simple prose identifies the parts of the body at rest and in motion. Meanwhile, the friendly realism of Heather Collins's illustrations offers a variety of body types in familiar environments, from the bathroom to the beach.

Excellent book. Very well done and with tasteful , non-offending illustrations. Would recommend highly for every parent to read with their young ones.

Fantastic book! Excellent resource for teaching children the correct names of all their body parts, including the ones we cover up and tend to skip over. The introduction of nipples, penis and vagina (sadly doesn't include vulva, which is the outer part of the female anatomy that kids can actually see) is done so subtly that this book isn't really a "body science" or "sexual health" book... it's just a casual book about all the different parts of the body.
