Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- A simple, entertaining introduction to blood and its function. The information is basic but lively and highly readable, peppered with rhymes that reinforce the text. Simple activities are included. What really makes this book special are Madden's energetic, full-color illustrations, which are mostly depictions of a young boy and his highly expressive dog engaged in some activity related to the text. On occasions where groups are pictured, minorities are well represented. A couple of drawings of blood components are included, but the style is fully in keeping with the rest of the illustrations, light and interpretive rather than precisely detailed. Useful in a primary grade anatomy unit, as well as enjoyable recreational reading. --Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI
