App Review: How My Body Works

How My Body Works, a new app from De Agostini, one of Europe's largest publishers of entertainment and educational publications, is a fun way for kids to learn about the human body. Featured as Italy's App of the Week, this is De Agostini's first entry into the U.S. market. 

This is such a fun way for your kids to learn about the human body! 3D female and male models lead you through an interactive adventure through the human body, to explore the body systems and organs.

If you've seen the classic book, How My Body Works, you will recognize this information.  My 13 year old is taking biology. As much as she loves science, she is really struggling a bit with this honors biology class. I think this app will help her tremendously.

Gorgeous artwork makes these lessons so appealing, and so much more interesting than a boring textbook. Our kids are so into technology that textbooks have become boring to them. The interactive features of this program will keep their interest much longer than a book ever could. The characters and sounds are so cute! Your kids might just forget they are learning!

Covering the sensory system, circulatory system, digestive system, respiratory system, locomotor system, nervous system, reproductive system,  as well as the urinary and lymphatic systems, this app is extremely in-depth.

The sensory unit is free, and is a great way for you to try the app out. Buying the extra systems is well worth the price. Wouldn't it be cool if, instead of playing games, your kids asked to play How My Body Works? 

I can't wait to hear what you think! Come back and share!

I received a complimentary app of How My Body Works for purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.
