Description: Product Description
This book will prove to children that their body is simply amazing, with masses of parts, some of them very strange and others incredibly yucky. Did you know that you have over 5 million hairs on your body - as many as a gorilla? And you produce a litre of spit every day. Smarties Hairy Humens explores our bodies inside and out. It also checks out the weird and wonderful things we've been up to over the last few thousand years. From the Ice Age to what you ate for breakfast, and from the shortest person who ever lived to the man with the longest hair. Did you know? Every square centimetre of your skin has 2.9 million cells; King Louis XIV of France had only three baths in his whole lifetime; Humans could ski before they could ride; For the vital low-down on ear wax, the highest bungee jump, or when the first traffic jam took place, look no further, this is the place to find it!
