30 Homeschool Preschool Books about the Human Body

The human body is fascinating and preschoolers are super curious about the world around them so this is a great unit study to really spark their interest in themselves! Our books about the human body covered the different systems of the body from bones to blood to brains and so much more!

On the Hunt for Picture Books About the Human Body

There were SO many good books about the human body, the one thing I wish I had found more of was more classic picture books or more lyrical ones. We had to rely on mostly nonfiction this time around. So if you have any recommendations leave them down below!!!

General Books about the Human Body for Preschoolers

Some of the books listed below are above a preschool level but I found them very helpful and you can always pick and choose how much to read and what to leave out or how to summarize. These Human body books cover a little of everything and quite a few are lift the flaps, which are always a win here!

Usborne Books About the Human Body

I wanted to give a special shout-out to Usborne Books and More, my favorite all-purpose books about the human body are from their catalog! They are my favorite for presenting lots of information in a way that is easy for littles to understand and all the flaps don’t hurt either!

Body Systems Books

These books about the human body books focus on the various systems in the body, how they work, what they do, and where they are located in the body. We tried to focus on the systems that are easier for a preschooler to see or feel or have some kind of hands-on experience!

Skin and Diversity Books

While Diversity was not the main point of our lessons for our human body books, I couldn’t not include a few. This is by no means an exhaustive list of options available on this topic, I just wanted a few that highlighted all the different colors, shapes, and sizes that humans come in!
