Horn Book Guide (Spring 2013)
The light tone of these human-body books highlighting skin ailments and healthy lifestyle choices matches the brightly colored cartoon illustrations featuring chipper kids. Healthy stresses the importance of sleep, nutrition, exercise, and supportive relationships, while Itchy covers the discomforts of dry skin, dermatitis, hives, etc. The fairly elementary information omits some useful facts. Glos. [Review covers these Body Works titles: My Healthy Body and My Itchy Body.]
