Gr. 2-5, younger for reading aloud. Part of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out series, this is an excellent introduction to the heart and how it works. Clear, direct words, lively pictures, and simple diagrams tell how to make a stethoscope ("Any kind of cardboard tube will do"), take your pulse, and listen to the heartbeats of a friend, an adult, a baby. There's a big diagram of the heart and explanations of how its valves open and close to keep the blood moving in the right direction through the veins and arteries. The book also includes simple instructions on how to measure heart rate, how to exercise the heart and keep it healthy, and a Web site to find out more. The open, informal design brings the physiology right into daily life. Factual, accurate, and fun. Hazel Rochman
