What Every Part of Your Body Said | 嗨，身体的各位！

Have you ever thought how does our body work to process a simple act of taking a candy from the pocket and popping it into your mouth? This is another fun and playful book by Taro Gomi in his creative attempt to explain the complexity of body science behind even the simplest act.
The book begins with a boy who casually slipped his hands into his pocket and found a candy. His fingers feel the candy first and asked "what is this?". The brain recalled a past memory that the candy was a treat given by someone. Almost at the same time, the eyes commented the candy looked dirty and the fingers can feel the candy has melted slightly. Mouth reassured the rest that it can still be eaten while the tongue is busy tasting the candy...nomnomnom....
Taro Gomi personified every body part and had them conversing with one another to dissect a simple act to let young children understand how our mental processing and body reflexes work together to determine an outcome. The funny conversation and playful illustration effectively turned a complex topic into an easy-to-understand concept. Highly recommended!
