Description

What's inside your rib cage? Hint: it's not a canary! Why is bumping your humerus totally not funny? Why do football players and carpenters need knee pads? Kids will learn about all 206 of their very own bones - what they look like, where they are, what they do. Actual x-rays of real bones take kids through the skeletal system, inviting them to locate and explore their own bones. Clear explanations (fact-checked and approved by a pediatrician), colorful illustrations, and humorous analogies make for a fresh look at a familiar topic. From head to toe (or from cranium to phalanges), kids will get a skeleton of fascinating bone-formation!
