Children's LiteratureThe human body is amazing. This "Scholastic Science Reader" takes a look at the bones that make up our bodies. As babies we have about 300, but as adults we have 206. That is because many bones fuse as we age. Bones are rather light and only constitute 20% of our body weight. They also protect vital organs and help with movement. The pictures and illustrations clearly show the points made in the text. Some words are described phonetically in the text. There is also a glossary and an index. For anyone interested in learning more about the human body, this book will be an excellent start. A Level 2 book.
