PreS The shock value of this title is largely undeserved. The book is actually an introduction to the parts of the body for young children. A page or two is devoted to each feature, which is displayed in a number of ways. ``Noses,'' for example, shows runny noses, itchy noses, blowing noses, and advises, ``Don't pick your nose.'' Slightly stiff illustrations show children and adults in everyday situations with accompanying descriptive phrases``Pushing arms,'' ``Yummy toes,'' etc. The organization of the text is somewhat illogical, with shoulders followed by belly buttons and nipples followed by arms. There are relatively few ``bare naked'' bodies, all belonging to babies or small children. Genitals are clearly displayed; a bathtime scene makes a comfortably natural setting. Although the artwork is mediocre, the concept is well done. This approach is a good one for older toddlers and preschoolers who are becoming aware of others' bodies as well as their own; it has the added bonus of descriptive adjectives which are useful for vocabulary building. Sally Kilroy's Babies' Bodies (Four Winds, 1984) is aimed at a younger audience and is less detailed. Lucy Young Clem, Evansville-Vanderburgh County Public Library, Ind.
