This book exposes children to the most exposed, yet underappreciated organ—our skin. The integumentary system is the body's first line of defense against disease and bacteria. It's also the liaison between the external world and our other invaluable body systems. This book discusses the different layers of skin and each layer's function. It explains how things can go wrong, and offers advice on ways to keep the skin and body healthy.
