Bookmarks - Children's Books on Human Body and Health

God used His incredible creative power to design the human body. Here are some great children's picture books that we enjoyed to our children to appreciate and care for their bodies.

A fun introduction to the names and functions of your bones.

Amazing photomicrographs join fun comic-style illustrations to tell the story of our body's reaction to an injury.

Germ Zapper by Fran Balkwill and Mic Rolph
How does your body fight disease? Discover the world of tiny germs, bacteria, viruses and all the cells God created to protect your body.

The Skeleton Inside You by Philip Balestrino
What is our skeleton made of and why do we need it? A fun way to learn about our bones. Warning: A brief mention of Halloween.

Breath In, Breath Out: Learning About Your Lungs by Pamela Hill Nettleton
This book explains the role of your lungs in simple terms. If you like this one check out additional books by this author on other parts of the body.

With clear illustrations, this book introduces a child to all the major systems of the body in an understandable way.

After my children read this book I often heard “Did you know that...?” Look for other child-tested books in this series.

TheCirculatory Story by Mary K. Corcoran

Why do you bleed when you get a cut? Humorous illustrations help tell the story of your blood and heart and their busy life.

  1. Two thumbs up! I have found that children generally enjoy learning about the human body, and it certainly inspires awe in our Creator!

  2. I'm so thankful for your book lists. I go straight to the library website and order them for pick up. You save this homeschooling mom a lot of time and work to pick out good books to learn from! THANK YOU!!!!

    1. I'm so glad, Melanie. I've benefited so much from others' book lists that I want to help other moms.


I love to hear from you.
