Title: Uncle Bob Talks With
My Digestive System
Author: Bob Devine
Genre: Kids, Educational
Publisher: Chariot Books
My father bought this book from The Doulos Ship when I was a kid. Its a book about Mortimer Mouth, Sylvester Stomach, and Irene Intestine. Uncle Bob is this man with a perpetual smile who talks to each of them and then we kids [on the tape] go oooh ahhh and wowow I didnt know that! It has nice illustrations and cutesy looking stomachs and intestines.
Heres another quote where he talks to Irene Intestine
Irene, is it you who makes that ergle, ergle sound inside me?
Oh, Uncle Bob, that's embaressing. Yes, that's me. You're hearing my muscles squeeze and mix my digestive juices with your food.
Yeah, and it's really educational too. You learn Form 3 level stuff from science like navel, pretty bright pink, it's pretty neat to be here and talk with the kids about their bodies, peritoneum, membrane, lubricated, villi, duodenum, and esophagus. And look at what kind of kids who read this book turned out to be? Neat eh? No storyline though you get to imagine stuff. Like how your food is actually processed by nice pink little sacks who smile and grin at you and have hands.
They also have the Uncle Bob Talks with My Respiratory System, Circulatory System, and Central Nervous System. Reccomended for ages 9-12; but if you're bored it doesnt really matter how old you are. graceshu # 6:18 PM
