Text by Fedor Katasonov, illustrated by Anna Zhurko
Did you know that the average human body temperature has fallen over the past 150 years?
Fedor Katasonov, a Moscow-based pediatrician, explains the workings of the human body and the nature of the human illness. What is a fever? Why do some diseases make us feel miserable while we barely notice others? How do we get better? Why are humans warm-blooded? What does our blood temperature tell us about evolution, medicine, and the animal world? Informative and educational, this book helps children understand the nature of illness and the workings of their bodies and helps them overcome their fear of doctors. The experiment at the end of the book allows the reader to understand the concept of thermoregulation.
