The Bone Book and Skeleton (Hand in Hand with Nature Series)

Overview


MAKE NO BONES ABOUT IT

Discover how the tiniest bones let you hear music, where a bite of apple goes once you swallow it, and why you shrink during the day and grow again at night.

This lively guide tells how bones grow, fit, fuse, and sometimes break. It explains how the bones make blood, and why we start with over 800 bones and end up with 206 when we finish growing. Plus all about the heart, our strongest muscle; the brain, which accounts ...

Overview


MAKE NO BONES ABOUT IT

Discover how the tiniest bones let you hear music, where a bite of apple goes once you swallow it, and why you shrink during the day and grow again at night.

This lively guide tells how bones grow, fit, fuse, and sometimes break. It explains how the bones make blood, and why we start with over 800 bones and end up with 206 when we finish growing. Plus all about the heart, our strongest muscle; the brain, which accounts for 2% of our weight but saps 20% of our energy; and the lungs whose several hundred million air sacs fill up and empty 15,000 times a day.

Filled with projects, THE BONES BOOK is also the aspiring anatomist's companion to the 25-piece custom-molded skeleton included in the package.

Describes how bones grow, fit, flex, and sometimes break, and examines the structure of the human skeleton and its role in protecting vital body parts. Includes projects, experiments, and a skeleton model.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Awesome data about the body (e.g. your eye muscles contract 100,000 times a day) appear in a guide that virtually sparkles with the paleontologist/author's enthusiasm, expertise, and sense of humor. The 4- x 8-inch paperback is packaged with a 25-piece make-your-own skeleton, whose assembly certainly makes its parts familiar - make no bones about that.
