About The Animal Body Book

Join children's author and vet Dr Jess French and explore how animal bodies work, and the amazing things they can do.

The Animal Body Book is a friendly introduction to animal anatomy, perfect for any child fascinated by animals or budding veterinarians.

With nine chapters covering skeletons, circulation, digestion, the senses and more, every aspect of anatomy is covered, all clearly explained by animal expert Dr Jess French. Animals perform extraordinary feats every day, from breathing underwater to flying, but how do they do these amazing things? The answers lie in the miraculous forms and features of their bodies.

This fascinating animal anatomy book for kids offers:

- Detailed but child-friendly illustrations of animal biology on every page.
- Information by animal expert and children’s TV presenter Jess French.
- First of its kind material focusing on animal biology for children aged 5-9.
- 9 chapters which break down different anatomy, covering: skeletons, muscles, circulation, breathing, digestion, the senses, reproduction, skin, and invertebrates.

From a whale's enormous heart and an owl's sensitive ears, to a tortoise's tough shell and an insect's unusual eyes, explore more than 40 animal adaptations in close detail. Vivid photography combined with annotated illustrations reveal what each species looks like inside, and colourful diagrams help support children’s understanding of animal anatomy.
