Synopsis

Heart, Lungs and Blood by Steve Parker

This book explains how the body's circulatory and respiratory systems work and shows how they are essential for life. It takes a close look at how we breathe and speak, how the heart beats and how blood works. The clear and lively text explains these systems in fascinating and intricate detail. It also highlights the workings of the human body contrasted with the bodies of animals. There are case studies about, for example, what happens to the body when running a race. There are also features on health and medicine, considering problems that can occur with the heart and lungs and what we can do to keep them healthy. Amazing colour photographs combine with original colour artwork to show the different body parts in detail. Weblinks, with useful website addresses which link to sites with more information about a particular topic, are an added feature throughout the book.

Reviews

All these titles are fascinating, insightful and informative. The series is an excellent resource for more able key stage 2 scientists, though intended for KS3. Each title develops its subject matter through straightforward text and clearly detailed illustrations and photographs. Together with a comprehensive contents, index and well chosen web links, this allows readers to engage with the text independently. -- TES 20041022

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
