Children's Literature
The essential functions of the circulatory system are explained in this title from the "Early Bird Body Systems" series. The circulatory system's basic structure of the heart, blood, and blood vessels is described first, as well as how all things in the body are made of cells. Next is a detailed description of the heart's structure and how blood is pumped in and out of the heart, purifying it in the process. The blood vessels are then examined closely, including identifying the difference between arteries, veins, and capillaries. Blood itself is then described, from the red blood cells that carry oxygen to the white blood cells which aid in healing. Numerous diagrams and photographs illustrate the complex concepts presented in this book, making it very easy to understand. Study aids such as a "word detective" section, a glossary, and a "Note to Adults" also add to the learning experience. 2005, Lerner Publications, Ages 8 to 12.

Gr 3-4-Adequate introductions to three systems in the human body. The texts are succinct and include enough information to give very basic overviews. The illustrations are mostly decorative (children playing, drinking milk, holding a dog, doing cartwheels on a beach). The diagrams of skeletons, muscles, arteries, etc., are clear and easy to read. All three books include notes to adults about how to share these books with children. Additional purchases.-Christine A.
