Cardiology for Babies by Dr. Haitham Ahmed introduces young readers to one of the most important muscles in the body - the heart. The author shows readers where the heart is and how it interacts with the body. Specifically, he helps readers identify the parts of the heart and how blood flows through it to allow people to run, jump, and play.
Despite the title being Cardiology for Babies, this book is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school-aged readers. Sure, parents can definitely read this to their babies and get a head start on cardiology knowledge. However, it is the perfect book for school. It would fit perfectly in a lesson introducing science and the body. It would also be a great supplemental tool to use in lesson planning.
My favorite part of this book was how educational and interactive it was. The author made understanding the heart easy. Kids are sure to understand and find it interesting. The author also has kids breathe and then explains that this breath fills our blood with oxygen and helps the heart. It also tells readers to turn the book around to understand where the heart and its ventricles are in relation to your body.
The pages are also bright and colorful, not to mention the illustrations. Even the diagram of the heart was bright and, surprisingly, not overly detailed and confusing. The book is going to keep the attention of young readers. Parents and teachers don't have to worry about them getting distracted. In fact, kids may want to read it again!
Honestly, I do not have a single complaint. There was nothing I disliked about this book. I found no grammatical, spelling, or formatting errors. Cardiology for Babies was short and kid-friendly, as it should be. As such, I have to give this book 4 out of 4 stars.
