Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
The reader will learn that your breathing rate changes depending on your activity level, but they have probably observed that anyway. The oxygen you breathe is needed to burn the food you eat. Your respiratory system then moves the carbon dioxide that is produced from that food burning to your circulatory system. Excellent analogies such as "your nose is like the door to your respiratory system" are used. Mucus waits for dust and germs that enter your nose where you either cough it out or swallow it. There is a great photograph of the cilia that move the mucus around. You cannot breathe and swallow at the same time because of the flap that will close off either the tube to the stomach or lungs. These tubes are labeled later in the book. There are beautiful photos of the vocal cords next to the illustration of vocal cords open and closed. There are other photo and illustrations such as the alveoli and bronchi. This informative series is library bound, with a glossary and up to date websites, and would be welcomed in libraries and science teachers' rooms.
