Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Art and artifacts that focus on bones surround the human skeleton which stretches across the opening six pages of one of the first and best "Eyewitness Book." What follows are equally riveting "displays" which vividly illustrate similarities and differences between people and a few of the other 40,000 species with backbones.
Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
Along with the 206 human bones, readers can browse through over sixty pages of animal skeletons. Organized in twenty-five chapters, the text is tiny, packed with information. Large shots entice tracing, drawing, and scrutiny. The great close-up photography will delight and amazes students. This book is an excellent resource for classrooms-these Eyewitness books rarely sit on the shelf.
