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.
Kathy Stinson is the author of children's classics Red is Best, and Big or Little?, and recent multi-award winners like The Man with the Violin, and Harry and Walter. She lives near Guelph, Ontario.

Editorial Reviews

The concept is well done. This approach is a good one for older toddlers and preschoolers who are becoming aware of others' bodies as well as their own.
