In this fascinating introduction to skeletal systems, images show how different types of skeletons work. Full-color photographs of people and animals are overlaid with illustrations of bones to show these supporting frameworks. Kids will learn that bones come in all shapes and sizes to serve myriad functions and will be able to compare human skeletons to those of other vertebrates.
