A Drop of Blood Paperback – Illustrated, May 4 2004
Read and find out about how your body uses blood in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.
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?
"An excellent choice for units on the circulatory system or to take the fear out of cuts, scrapes, and blood tests," according to a School Library Journal starred review.

Really nice book with lots of info about what blood is and what it does for our bodies. It's amusing to me that this has dracula even if my 5 year old doesn't know who that is. The diagrams are concise and easy to understand. There are photos of magnified blood cells, diagrams of how the blood flows thru our bodies. Since all kids skin their knees there is an explanation of what happens when you get a boo-boo and blood comes out and a scab forms while new skin grows to cover the cut. There is even info on how much blood we have inside us at different ages.
We are steadily collecting all the "Let's read and find out" series. I haven't found one yet that I didn't enjoy. My 5 year old genuinely loves to learn about science so these books feed his hunger for knowledge. It doesn't seem to matter which level we read from. This one is level 2. He isn't reading them yet but likes me to read to him still. The information isn't over his head even when the reading level is. I highly recommend them all.
10/10 do recommend
