Heart, Lungs and Blood by Steve Parker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


All you need to know about heart, lungs and blood. 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.
