Your skin! From the top of your head to the soles of your feet, you are all wrapped up in skin. Your skin protects your body from germs and dirt. But it is also very sensitive and sometimes needs protection itself. Read and find out about your amazing, strong, and delicate skin. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

"New illustrations and some text revision update this 1965 basic introduction to the skin and its functions. Four children take turns presenting different aspects of the skin, such as pigment and melanin, cuts and healing, fingerprints, and the sense of touch."—SLJ.

This is a Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
