School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-7-A beautifully illustrated, fairly comprehensive overview. Double-page spreads cover the circulatory system, blood composition, red and white cells, clotting, vessels, the heart and how it beats, the circulation of oxygen, delivery of blood to and from body parts, and the lymphatic system and vessels. The text takes readers step by step through the various processes and explains the anatomical features along the way. Each topic is covered in several brief paragraphs; the full-color diagrams and illustrations take up about two-thirds of each spread. A great deal of information is included in the captions, but in some instances readers must work hard to decipher what's going on in the accompanying pictures. A spread called ``Simple Experiments'' offers a transfusion compatibility chart and suggests two activities-taking a pulse before and after doing a few push-ups and pressing a finger to an ice cube to see how the capillaries constrict and force blood away from the surface. Buy this title for the illustrations and the detailed ``how it works'' explanations to supplement such standard works as Steve Parker's The Heart and Blood (Watts, 1989).-Denise L.
