The Breathtaking Respiratory System
For Ages 8-12
Celebrate God’s incredible design of your body and its functionality. For example, at the top of your nasal cavity is a space the size of a postage stamp with around 10 million small receptor cells. Most people can distinguish over 10,000 different odors!
Discover Your Design!
Developed by a homeschooling pediatrician, this book focuses on the amazing design and functionality of the human body’s respiratory system. You will discover:
- An elementary-level exploration of the human body’s respiratory system, focused on structures, function, diseases, and God’s efficient and effective designs
- Fast facts and important discoveries that help medical professionals understand the mechanisms of our lungs, sinus cavities, and diaphragm
- Find out why the common cold isn’t so common after all - hundreds of viruses cause over 1 billion cases of the “common’” cold each year!
With a loud piercing wail, most of us entered this world as a crying baby taking in our first big breath of air. Breathe in. Breathe out. You hardly notice your respiratory system at work every minute, day and night, awake or asleep, without fail. From our first breath to our last, breathing is truly essential to life. What powers the over 23,000 breaths each of us takes daily? Come on a captivating odyssey through the wind tunnels of the body and be prepared to be amazed!
