The story is full of heart facts through whimsical illustrations.  Henry’s heart asks questions, “Why am I beating so fast when Henry is standing absolutely still?”  Tables and clever clipart even conversations with the eyes, “what’s going on?”.  Although the story is fiction, it may be a springboard for further non-fiction exploration.
