You've seen your own blood, when you have a cut or a scrape. You can see the veins in your wrist, and you've seen the scab that forms as a cut heals. But do you know what blood does for you? Without blood, you couldn't play, or grow, or learn. That's because just about every part of your body needs blood, from your muscles to your bones to your brain. How does your body use blood? Read and find out!

This book offers a humorous look inside the human body in an effort to inform readers about the circulatory system. The text is simply written and easy to understand. Color illustrations are used rather than photographs, but they're used well. The book is appropriate for all ages.

This book was a HUGE hit at our house. Here we have a nice Dracula educating us about our blood in a fun, exciting way. For that reason, this would also make a wonderful addition to your Halloween library. :)
