Abstract
As the son of the world's most famous tech billionaire, spoiled Jett Baranov has always gotten what he wanted. So when his father's private jet drops him in the middle of a place called the Oasis, Jett can't believe it. He's forced to hand over his cell phone, eat grainy veggie patties, and participate in wholesome activities with the other kids whom he has absolutely no interest in hanging out with. As the weeks go on, Jett starts to get used to the unplugged life and even bonds with the other kids over their discovery of a baby-lizard-turned-pet, Needles. But he can't help noticing that the adults at the Oasis are acting really strange. Could it be all those suspicious "meditation" sessions? Jett is determined to get to the bottom of things, but can he convince the other kids that he is no longer just a spoiled brat making trouble?

Abstract
Kids of all ages have some important questions about how their bodies work?and why their parents and other adults have some strong ideas on what needs to get done every day in order to stay healthy. Children often hear:
"No more screen time!"
"Eat your vegetables!"
"You can?t have cookies for dinner!"
"You need to take your medicine!"
"Wash your hands! With soap!"
"It?s getting late! Get ready for bed!!"
In this book, Dr. Nina L. Shapiro embarks on an amazing journey through the body as it gets fed, protected, exercised, cleaned, energized, and rested. Each chapter provides kids with age-appropriate explanations and illustrations that address their very good questions about their bodies and health with solid (and fun!) science-based answers. By receiving an in-depth understanding of what it means to be healthy, strong, clean, rested, and energized, kids will soon be able to make smart decisions on their own.
The human body is incredible, and the science behind how our bodies work, how the world affects our bodies, and how our bodies affect the world around us is pretty cool, too.
