A poetic and visually breathtaking look at what happens inside your body when you breathe
What happens when you breathe? In this beautiful book, breath—the very air, stardust, the grand molecules of the universe—blossoms in the upside-down tree in your rising chest, animating and enlivening you. And when you breathe out, you send your song out into the world.
The metaphors swirl into an understanding that our human bodies don’t stand over the natural world, but are part of it.School Library Journal, The NCTE Excellence in Children’s Poetry Award Committee
"Science and art combine in an appealing presentation demonstrating how breathing nourishes our bodies as part of the larger ecosystem." – BooklistBooklist
