Bones: Skeletons and How They Workby Steve Jenkins
Synopses & Reviews
Caldecott Honor winner Steve Jenkins presents a fascinating look at the bones of the human body as compared to the bones of animals, and shows them off!
This book is far from skinny — it's the definitive nonfiction title about human and animal bones, delivered with in-your-face accuracy and intrigue. In this visually driven volume, kids come face-to-face with some head-to-toe boney comparisons, many of them shown at actual size. Here you'll find the differences between a man's hand and that of a spider monkey; the great weight of an elephant's leg, paired with the feather-light femur of a stork; and rib-tickling info about snakes and sloths. How many bones are in the whole human body?
Kids come face to face with some head-to-toe boney comparisons, many of them shown at actual size. Includes three large gatefold spreads that reveal the hard (yet enjoyable) truths about the boney insides of Earth's many creatures. Full color.
