by | Sep 5, 2023 | News

Histria Books is pleased to announce the release of Bart’s Heart by Cargill Alleyne, illustrated by Colby Zahn. The book is published by Histria Kids, an imprint of Histria Books dedicated to outstanding works for children that both educate and entertain. It is the second installment in a series of educational children’s books about the human body called Anatomy for Kids.

Bart’s Heart presents facts about the human heart in an entertaining, colorful manner. In addition to the facts presented, there is a glossary at the end of the book which provides both meanings of the medical terms as well as pronunciations. There is also a small heart hidden in the detail of each illustration for the reader to discern.

Bart tries to survive his hockey game while his Dad shouts fun facts about the structure and function of his heart. We hope that the text will promote the habit of parents, caregivers, and teachers reading with their children. We also hope that it will spark an interest in the human body in children of all socioeconomic backgrounds.
