Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
Broken bones usually do not stay broken forever. A plaster cast can be used so the two ends of the broken bone heal back together, usually in about six weeks. This book explains that there are different types of breaks. One will also read that any injury can hurt a lot even if the bone isn't broken, which might be helpful to read when you are in pain and are told, "It isn't broken." There is so much to learn about bones and this book makes a good introduction to learn how valuable they are. The bones support your body so you won't be a "lump of wobbly jelly." They protect important organs and allow movement and the insides of flat bones provide our red blood cells. There are different types of bones shapes, and they can be spongy or compact. As always in this series the great illustrations and photographs help the reader understand the concepts. Ligaments are strong fibers that hold joints together and tendons attach muscles to bones. There are many things the reader can do to protect important bones such as eating right, exercise and protect your bones with helmets and braces. Good, solid knowledge to the young researcher. Part of the "Inside My Body" series. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell
