School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-There is a lot of information in this slim title. Beginning with a comparison of the skeleton to the frame of a house, the author describes the structure and composition of bone, muscle, and skin. Subsequent chapters address these topics in much more detail, including ligaments, joints, cartilage, flexors, and extensors. Also included are descriptions of both the structure of skin (epidermis, dermis, etc.) and disorders like acne and cancer. The full-color illustrations and diagrams complement the text, and the "Amazing but True" section contains some informative trivia, such as "Bones are four times as strong as concrete."-Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
