Zany cartoon illustrations make the circulatory system perfectly understandable! Lean about what's going on inside of your veins, what's up with bleeding, and how your heart, blood, and blood vessels all work together to keep you alive. Following a blood vessel throughout the system, aspects of the system are labeled with their proper names, and explained. A glossary is included. 41 pages, softcover.
Simple, humorous text and comic illustrations explain the basics of the circulatory system--the systemic, pulmonary, and coronary circuits. Readers follow a red blood cell on its journey through the body, and in the process learn how the body combats disease, performs gas exchanges, and fights plaque.
