The Lovereading4Kids comment

Disgustingly informative, this is a touchy, feely guide to some of the most disgusting things in life. Open the flap and find out about blood and bones, travel on a roller coaster ride around the fast flowing systems that control human blood and breathing. It is an excellent and original way of explaining the complexities of the human body.

Lovereading comment:

Parents please ignore the title and the gruesome snot built into the cover!!! Open up this book. It’s brilliant and will provide hours of entertainment for children of 5+ particularly those who find science boring at school. This is sure to enthuse them when they go back into the classroom. With loads of pop-ups, pull-tabs, fact boxes, pull-out leaflets and everything in between, readers will be given a roller-coaster ride around the human respiratory and circulatory systems that might seem a bit gross to parents but kids will love. A great way to discover just how amazingly clever our bodies are!

Lets you discover the facts about breathing, blood and bogeys. This pop-up guide is suitable for those studying science at Key Stage 1 & 2 - where children are taught about respiration and how blood circulates round the body.
