9780060546540: Lungs: All about Our Respiratory System and More!

Take a deep breath and then let it out. Did you feel your chest rise and fall? That is actually your lungs filling with oxygen and then pushing carbon dioxide back out when you exhale. Without your lungs and your entire respiratory system, the rest of your body wouldn't receive the oxygen you need to survive. To give your body the oxygen it needs, you breathe twenty times every minute. You breathe more than twenty thousand times each and every day. Acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon explores the important journey that air takes in and out of your lungs.

From Booklist:

What happens when a person breathes, coughs, sneezes, or hiccups? Simon provides the answers in his latest science education book, written under the Smithsonian's imprimatur. Although this book isn't quite as detailed as some of the author's previous texts about the human body, there's still plenty of information for elementary-school readers, and as always, Simon brings the science close without condescension. Beginning with what happens when a person inhales, he goes on to discuss the parts of the respiratory system and how they work, with more particulars sometimes provided in the glossary. Each attractive,^B double-page spread^B features one page of spaciously laid out, informative text opposite a full-page, color illustration. The striking images include photos, diagrams, and color-enhanced X-rays of the nasal cavity, the trachea, the heart and major blood vessels, and more. The scary view of a smoker's damaged lungs, which appears opposite facts about serious respiratory problems, may inspire classroom discussion. Hazel Rochman
