Synopsis:

The truth about bones may surprise some young readers: As people get older, the number of bones they have actually decreases. A spine isn’ t straight— even when a person stands tall, it’ s shaped like an “ S.” But that’ s no sign of weakness— the rib cage is like a knight’ s armor— it protects the heart, stomach, and lungs. Children and adults alike will never again take for granted the miracle that is their skeleton.
