Dax's Dependable Digestive System

From the Series Let's Look at Body Systems!

In this title, early fluent readers meet Dax, a boy who likes to cook, as he learns about his digestive system. Read along as Dax and his dad discuss how our bodies digest food, how our bodies turn food into nutrients, how nutrients are distributed throughout our bodies, and how our bodies produce waste. Vibrant illustrations and carefully leveled text engage young readers in a supportive educational fiction reading experience.

Children can learn more about the digestive system using Fact Surfer, our safe online search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. This book also features diagrams, a review section, tools for teachers and caregivers, a glossary, an index, and a table of contents.

Grasshopper Books offers simple, fun fiction for emerging readers. Dax's Dependable Digestive System is part of Jump!'s Let's Look at Body Systems! series.
