The Stomach and Intestines in Your Body


Without the stomach and intestines, we wouldn’t be able to digest food or fuel our bodies to create energy. This book teaches young readers about all the parts of the digestive system, including the stars of the system, the stomach and intestines. Readers will be fascinated to learn how the food they eat is processed by their body and turned into fuel that allows them to run on the playground and study in class. Colorful photos and diagrams, plus vocabulary and critical thinking boxes make learning about the stomach and intestines lots of fun.
