Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
The circulatory system connects all of the body systems together. That makes it a very important body system. All body parts are made of cells and every cell needs food and oxygen. Blood supplies the cells with these and carries away the waste products such as carbon dioxide. The heart moves the blood around with a squeezing action that pumps all of the time without us thinking about it. In this book every part of the system is explained in clear terms, engaging photos, and clear illustrations. The photo of the flaps of muscles of the heart that keep the blood moving forward in the heart is a great example of engagement. The parts of the heart are named and located as well as the illustration of how blood flows though the chambers of the heart. A young reader can learn atrium and ventricle as well as top and bottom of the heart. Blood is made of different parts and again there is no talking down, but clear science words. All of the books in this series deliver what you want. This is a series that can start a young reader towards lifelong learning. The book is library bound and ready for a lot of use it will get.
