Children's LiteratureAs part of the series "Human Body," this book provides a general understanding of the human skeleton and the parts the bones play in protecting the body. The captions for each photo appropriately summarize each brief chapter, and the photos are rich in explanation. Brief and basic analogies are used throughout the text to reinforce points made about the importance of the body's skeletal system. This would be another useful classroom teaching tool for the very young. An activity at the end of the book shows kids how the bones of the skeleton make the body sturdier, which reinforces the basic text. 2004, Smart Apple Media, Ages 7 to 9.
