When our girls were young, we bought a wooden human body puzzle from Discovery Toys. It had five layers, each one showing a different “system” of the body (skeleton, organs, muscles, skin, and then the top layer of clothing). I can’t tell you how many times I found one of my kids working on that puzzle!
We also watched two episodes from Rachel and the Treeschoolers over and over again! Both My Amazing Body and Happy, Healthy Me (episodes 5 and 6) are perfect for preschoolers and primary grade students who are wanting to learn more about human anatomy.

We also found this great “Super Simple Body” series at our library that include beautiful pictures, detailed drawings, and science experiments.
Doreen Cronin (Click, Clack, Moo) has a cute trio of books that are perfect for ACTIVE kiddos.
If you are looking for books about healthy boundaries for children and their bodies, these two both get my stamp of approval.
