Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This informational book, which is part of "The Bridgestone Science Library" series, gives readers the opportunity to read all about bones in the human body. Learn about the importance of bones and what they do for the body. Also included are detailed explanations in a simple format about what bones are made of, how they are attached at joints, and the functions of bones. Throughout the book are full color pictures and various facts about bones; for example, more than half of a human's bones are in the hands and feet. Suggested activities are included to help give a more hands-on approach in understanding for the reader. Additional reference pages at the end of the book include a glossary, further studying suggestions such as books, videos, and Web sites and an index. This book is an ideal tool to use for introducing science about the human body in a classroom setting. Also this is a great book to introduce to children who are curious about what bones are and how they work. 2002, Capstone Press,

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-The simple layouts of these excellent series titles include colorful borders and lots of white space. Each spread discusses one topic ("Joints," "Inside Your Brain") and consists of a page of from three to six sentences opposite an illustration. The full-color photographs correspond well to the text and show children of various ethnicities. Words are defined on page margins and in the glossary. "Fun Fact" boxes include interesting side notes (babies are born with 300 bones, while adults have 206). An easy-to-follow "Hands On" activity is provided at the back of each book. Similar in scope to Anna Sandeman's Bones (1995) and Brain (1996, both Copper Beech), the material presented here is even more basic and will be highly useful for the youngest students and browsers.-Shauna Yusko, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
