Like all children his age, Caillou is very active, discovering life through his daily experiences and becoming more aware of his body. When he runs, he can feel his heart beat faster. When he eats and drinks, he has to go to bathroom. After a busy day, he takes a bath and goes to sleep, only to repeat the whole thing again the following day. The simple and easy-to-understand explanations of the human body are written from Caillou’s point of view—perfect for children his age who want to know how their body functions and how to take care of it. Introducing children to the human body and some of its major systems, this unique Caillou-shaped book explores the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the skin, cleanliness, and visible anatomy.
