Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Sulock
In this book, a part of the "My Body" series, Lindeen explains the basics of the skeletal system in a three part, first person narrative. The first section, "My Bones," explains what the skeletal system is and why it is important. "On the Inside," the second section, covers how bones give the body its shape and is complemented by basic illustrations. Lastly, "My Bones and My Body" unite the two concepts, allowing children to understand the relationship between muscles and bones and the role of nutrition. The pages contain full-page pictures of both color photographs and illustrations. The text is designed to help readers grasp new concepts and subject-specific vocabulary, such as: joint, muscle, protect, ribs, skeleton, and spine, which are defined in the "Glossary." Also included are a "Read More" section, a brief list of books related to the skeletal system, and an explanation of where readers can find more information on the Internet. With short sentences and large bold type, My Bones is a sturdy choice for young readers learning about anatomy.
