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.
About the Author
Diana Farid is the author of When You Breathe, published by Cameron Kids. She is a poet and a physician at Stanford University. She lives in the Bay Area. Kris Goto was born and raised in Japan, moved to Hong Kong at the age of nine, and spent two years of high school in New Zealand, where she became inspired by the art of Maori tattoos, in addition to manga. She lives and surfs in Hawaii.
The metaphors swirl into an understanding that our human bodies don’t stand over the natural world, but are part of it.
