The return of a treasured favorite about our bodies.
There is nothing more ordinary -- or 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, tangled) to toes (stamping, ticklish, skinny, 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' illustrations offers a variety of body types in familiar environments, from the bathroom to the beach.
Twenty years old and still going strong, The Bare Naked Book remains a favorite family introduction to the vocabulary of the body. We're proud to unveil this redesigned edition on this special anniversary.
