I purchased this as a science curriculum for my homeschooled kindergartener. Granted, there aren't many preschool/kindergarten science curricula out there. I based it on SWB's rec in the Well Trained Mind. This is written for pre-school teachers with many children, not homeschoolers with only one or two children. Most activities are set up for a group, and must be adapted. Not all needed materials are easily obtained items - one activity requires you to "borrow" x-rays of broken bones from a dr's office. (you can probably find pictures of them online - but that's not what the lesson says.)

We're doing some of the activities - and I've ordered "real science 4kids" pre-level 1 chemistry. (which I only learned about after ordering this book.)

I bought this book on the recommendation of the well-trained mind for PreK/K. I was disappointed, even though I had looked at the table of contents before I bought it. I had forgotten to look at a sample of the actual lessons. I was hoping for a lot more active activities for the senses that would be PreK oriented and easy for a homeschooling mom. This book isn't that. Slow and Steady Get Me Ready really covers all the things this book does--in a much easier way for me to do with my kids.

Homeschoolers all around rave about this book. It is a suggestion for curriculum in The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (Third Edition). I found it too low a level, even for my preschoolers. It is written for the preschool crowd, but I didn't find it a good fit for my children at all. My children are all firmly in the age range suggested by the book (3, 5, and 6) and had zero interest in any of the activities. They were all too easy for them and offered no answers to the real questions they had about their bodies. We ended up fairing better with some Encyclopedias and the Internet for an appropriate anatomy curriculum.

Chapter One: Keeping in Touch: Using Your Hands and Feet
Activities include tickling hand and feet with feathers, wearing one wet sock and one dry sock, looking at animal foot prints, making hand prints and calling them an x-ray, Picking up object with fingers splinted, etc.

Chapter Two: Huggers and Hoppers: How Arms and Legs Help You
Activities include hugging yourself, a fantasy walk to talk about seasons, back rub circle, pretending to play sports, reaching for stars, etc.

Chapter Three: Here's Looking at You: How Eyes See
Activities include buttoning your shirt looking in a mirror, talk and examine eyeglasses, touch items blindfolded and guess what they are, looking at one another's eye color, trying to locate one another with a mirror, etc.

Chapter Four: Listen Up: A World of Sounds
Activities include listening to high and low pitches, hiding and finding a clock, sing a song with an echo part, muffling a clock, closing your eyes and listening to see how close a clock is, etc.

Chapter Five: Your Nose Knows: It's More Than A Smeller Teller
Activities include holding your breath, making zoo animal noises, guessing characters based on seeing only their nose, hunt for popcorn by smell, smelling scratch and sniff stickers, etc.

Chapter Six: Open Wide and Say "Ahh": A Look Inside Your Mouth
Activities include discussing feelings, rolling your tongue, make and compare kiss prints, looking at your teeth in a mirror, dissolve a baby tooth in soda, make plaster casts of teeth, try to swallow upside down, etc.

Chapter Seven: The Inside Story: A Look at Guts and Stuff
Activities include breathing on a cold window, measure your chest when inhaling and exhaling, counting breaths while sitting and running, listening to each other's heart with a cup, make prints of your belly button in PlayDough, etc.

Chapter Eight: Head to Toe: Everything Goes Together
Activities include talking about wounds and healing, copy each other's movements in a mirror, talking about lice, tracing your body with chalk, making a body puppet, measuring how tall you are every couple months, etc.

If this sounds like a good anatomy curriculum to you, then go ahead a use it.

This is definitely a classroom book. That said, it will be somewhat useful homeschooling my two oldest (pre-K, and K next year). The science is very basic, moreso than I would have liked. It does provide a nice starting place, though, which is often what I need. The activity ideas are fun, and I can always add to the information and complexity.
All in all, I am certainly glad that I bought this book used and very inexpensively (total with shipping was around $4.50). I think I will get my money's worth, but not if I had bought it new...
