Packed with amazing facts and eye-grabbing images, Your Breathtaking Lungs and Rocking Respiratory System takes a different approach to teaching the reader about the lungs and how and why we breathe.

Every spread opens with an amazing science fact about the human body – for example – An average person breathes around 8,000-9,000 litres of air in a day! – then goes on to explain how scientifically this is possible. By exploring these attention-grabbing sections, readers will build up their understanding of how the body’s lungs and respiratory system work.

Detailed diagrams and amazing images illustrate the lively, factual text. Your Breathtaking Lungs and Rocking Respiratory System looks at the structure of the lungs and the process of breathing. What happens when we breathe in? What actually is a sneeze? Why is breathing in harder than breathing out? Why does talking depend on breathing? Answers to all these questions and many more can be found in this fascinating title.

‘See for Yourself’ features – practical activities that help readers understand key ideas
Amazing fact panels to intrigue the reader
Advice on keeping in good shape, and warnings about common health problems.


The School Librarian
The book is excellent to teach children the basics of, and the importance of, their lungs. It also has further reading suggestions an comprehensive index at the end of the book so it is excellent for class projects. Colourful and with short paragraphs to help the young reader maintain engagement I would highly recommend this book for the school library.
