First sentence:

Your body has many parts.

Acquired: Purchased a used copy at a garage sale.

Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader.

A basic introduction to the human body and anatomy, filled with fun facts and photographs.  Even though labeled a Level 1, it is a little harder than most readers at this level with its use of specialized vocabulary.  However when extra tricky words appear they are followed by phonetic pronunciation, ex. "oxygen (ok-suh-juhn)".  The photographs contain a wide variety of racial groups, both male and female, and are eye-catching.  A nice little book for its purposes.  The 2000 edition I read is out of print and a reprint (with new cover) was published in 2010.  I cannot vouch that it is still the same.
