Description

What about when you're ice-skating or sledding? When you're cold, your blood vessels keep your body from losing heat by narrowing as much as possible and keeping the warm blood away from the skin's surface. You might notice tiny bumps on your skin. Most kids call these goosebumps, but the fancy name for them is the pilomotor (say: PY-lo-mo-ter) reflex. The reflex makes special tiny muscles called the erector pili (say: ee-REK-tur pee-LEE) muscles pull on your hairs so they stand up very straight. How Can I Keep My Skin Healthy? Your hair follicles rely on your sebaceous glands to bring on the shine. Connected to each follicle in the dermis layer is a tiny sebaceous gland that releases sebum onto the hair. This lightly coats the hair with oil, giving it some shine and a little waterproofing. How Can Skin Warm and Cool You?

My Skin Your Skin – Laura Henry-Allain MBE My Skin Your Skin – Laura Henry-Allain MBE

You have hair follicles all over your body, except on your lips, the palms of your hands, and the soles of your feet. And you have more hair follicles in some places than in others — there are more than 100,000 follicles on your head alone! Containing explanations on key words and concepts written in child-friendly, accessible language, with relatable examples, this book supports children’s understanding in building an anti-racist stance from an early age.

The next layer down is the dermis(say: DUR-mis). You can't see your dermis because it's hidden under your epidermis. Ah.Change00 - The style of this poem truly does evoke a sense of comfort and intimacy from the speaker to the reader. I think that the tetrameter works nicely with this poem, giving the flow and pacing needed for the the speaker to express themselves. In addition to the rhythm through the meters, the pacing is also set up by the use of commas to break the line apart. It allows the readers to slow down and really capture the moment, especially since the moment is very active in involving the readers.

My Skin, Your Skin – Laura Henry-Allain MBE

This book was specifically written by Early Years expert and children’s media creator, Laura Henry-Allain MBE, to support parents, teachers and guardians to explain what racism is, why it is wrong, and what children can do if they see it or experience it. It also explores how important it is for children to celebrate their achievements and greatness. My Skin Your Skin is a powerful book to help children and adults have meaningful discussions about race and anti-racism. Most importantly, the book empowers children to be the best versions of themselves; to have self-love, self-esteem and self-worth, irrespective of their skin colour.

Fully-illustrated throughout by talented illustrator Onyinye Iwu, My Skin, Your Skin is aimed at children aged four and above. My Skin Your Skin is a powerful book to help children and adults have meaningful discussions about race and anti-racism. Most importantly, the book empowers children to be the best versions of themselves; to have self -love, self-esteem and self-worth, irrespective of their skin colour.We are reminded that ‘ racism isn’t always about calling people names‘. Rather it is ‘ also about the way that things are done to stop people who are not white from being equal’. It can also be about organisations. We’re offered guidance about what to do when we experience racism, so that we use a ‘ loud voice‘ to say that racism is not ‘all right‘ and tell an adult you trust. We’re reminded that racism can be found anywhere. However being racist is ‘ never OK’. Your skin can help if you're feeling too hot or too cold. Your blood vessels, hair, and sweat glands cooperate to keep your body at just the right temperature. If you were to run around in the heat, you could get overheated. If you play outside when it's cold, your inner temperature could drop. Either way, your skin can help. And what about the other 5%? They make a substance called melanin (say: MEL-uh-nun). Melanin gives skin its color. The darker your skin is, the more melanin you have. When you go out into the sun, these cells make extra melanin to protect you from getting burned by the sun's ultraviolet, or UV, rays.

That's why your skin gets tan if you spend a lot of time in the sun. But even though melanin is mighty, it can't shield you all by itself. You'll want to wear sunscreen and protective clothing, such as a hat, to prevent painful sunburns. Protecting your skin now also can help prevent skin cancer when you get older. What's the Dermis? If you've been running around on a hot day, your blood vessels get the signal from the hypothalamus to release some of your body's heat. They do this by bringing warm blood closer to the surface of your skin. That's why you sometimes get a red face when you run around. Look down at your hands for a minute. Even though you can't see anything happening, your epidermis is hard at work. At the bottom of the epidermis, new skin cells are forming.It is perfect to read at home, and in classrooms, to support your child's life-long learning journey.

It is perfect to read at home, and in classrooms, to support your child’s life-long learning journey.
