“Three boats sail / Along the river of life –  / A sticky situation” starts the poem about blood, referencing the three types of blood cells and flow of blood through the body. All poems are a bit cryptic like this, but are accompanied by notes explaining the science.

Many of the poems are inspired by famous Shakespeare works, and a section at the back of the book has more information about poetry and Shakespeare.

Overall, this should be a fun book for kids to learn about the biology of various parts of the human body – and pick up some poetry along the way!

Random Body Parts will be out later this year, expected March 2015.

Order it on Amazon.
