Put your hand on your chest and you should feel your heart beating. At least I hope you do! You should feel it going thump, thump, thump. Have you ever wondered what your heart really does and why it is so important to your well being? Have you ever wondered why you bleed when you cut yourself? Do you know what causes a heart attack?

I'm going to answer these and a lot of other questions you might have about the heart and your body's circulatory system in this picture book as I give you an insider's view of what's going on inside you.

We'll follow my friend, a tiny drop of blood, as he travels through your circulatory system. Along the way you'll discover how the heart works and we'll travel through arteries and veins. I'll also tell you about some pretty important stuff about hemoglobin, plasma, atria, ventricles, capillaries, and red and white blood cells.

From start to finish this is a pretty wild journey, but I think you'll learn a lot about what goes on inside of you and why your heart is so very important to keeping you healthy. I bet you'll like this book and its cool cartoons so much that you'll want to share it with your friends and even take it to school to show your teacher.
