All you could ever want to know about BLOOD...

Narrative nonfiction is in demand, and here is a topic sure to appeal to the bloodthirsty readers in your school/library. THE BOOK OF BLOOD: FROM LEGENDS AND LEECHES TO VAMPIRES AND VEINS by HP Newquist (Houghton Mifflin, August 2012) walks readers through how we learned about the circulatory system to how blood travels through our bodies to how hard blood works (no wonder I am tired). Adding in some of the myth and lore about vampires and other bloodsuckers makes for interesting and informative reading. Science teachers will find this invaluable. <117>
