Can you feel your heart beating? Put your hand on
your chest and you can feel it beating. It is beating all the
time. It pumps blood through tubes that run all through your
body. The tubes are called veins and arteries. The blood goes
through the veins and arteries, and your heart. Your heart is the
pump that keeps the blood moving or circulating (circulating means going
round and round).
If you run very fast your heart beats faster and pumps
blood faster. Even while you are asleep your heart is working.
