If you're looking for a good book to help explain how the heart works, along with the lungs, try this one ....
My Heart and Lungs - an exciting way to learn about your body! by Sally Hewitt.
We found this book to be good because it includes:
- Coloured photographs,
- Clear, labelled diagrams/artwork,
- Activities to expand and help explain concepts
- And fascinating facts put in the way children can understand.
The book takes complex ideas and helps to explain them in a manner young children can understand them.
Based on the information we learnt from this book, "My Heart and Lungs," we used balloons to expand our understanding of how the heart works. The boys had heaps of fun with this.
