WHEN YOU BREATHE
Diana Farid
Synopsis
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 back matter glossary gives young readers facts about the science of respiration.

From the Author
WHEN YOU BREATHE is a poetic testament to the stunning science of our respiratory system, our connection to one another through air, and the stardust that we are breathing every moment of our lives. We follow the journey of air into the lungs of a little girl. Lungs, reimagined as an upside down tree, usher that breath into her as light and then out of her as a song imbued with stardust. The breath and voice of a girl takes center stage in this story, underscoring the fundamental role it's strength has in our wellbeing. The back-matter contains glossary of breathing science terms.
