Description
Caldecott Honor winner Steve Jenkins presents a fascinating look at the bones of the human body as compared to the bones of animals, and shows them off!This book is far from skinny -- it's the definitive nonfiction title about human and animal bones, delivered with in-your-face accuracy and intrigue. In this visually driven volume, kids come face-to-face with some head-to-toe boney comparisons, many of them shown at actual size. Here you'll find the differences between a man's hand and that of a spider monkey; the great weight of an elephant's leg, paired with the feather-light femur of a stork; and rib-tickling info about snakes and sloths. How many bones are in the whole human body?

display_descriptionBones come in all shapes and sizes. They grow. They support. They can even repair themselves when they break. Steve Jenkins explores the differences between human and animal bones, many of them shown at actual size. Take a close look at a human hand and those of a spider monkey, a mole and a bat. Compare the great weight of an elephant's leg with the feather-light femur of a stork.
