Do you remember I reviewed a book about Roadkill? I have a fantastic book to go along with that one! Anyways, the book I have today with called Who Owns These Bones? It has been a pleasure to review this book.
From the back
“Welcome to the secret world of skeletons! From the largest elephant to the smallest mouse, each animal is different, and that goes for their bones, too!
Meet a whole host of amazing skeletons and learn about what makes each one unique, from how to tell a gorilla from a human, to how to recognize a turtle just from its skull.
Lift the flaps to discover each skeleton’s animal owner, and find out amazing anatomy facts along the way! Can you work out Who Owns These Bones?”
The finer details:
40 pages fill out the space between the sturdy hardcovers, while finding simple illustrations in shades of white, black, grey and orange.
A variety of activities fill the pages with the bulk of them being lift-the-flap. Do you see all the information that dots the pages? This is no wee kids book of bones…this book is meant to delight and educate. Answers are always provided, sometimes on the back of a flap or on the bottom of a page.
This informative book would be an excellent addition to a course about bones, fossils or perhaps with a Dinosaur book or two. 🙂 Mind, it would also be an interesting add-along if you were doing a course with Northwest Treasures. Bones are an important part of understanding how animals are put together, this book is just filled with them. I wasn’t keen the evolutionary stuff but once we got past that paragraph or two the book just focused on bones. Bones, cartilage, exoskeletons, teeth, horns, fingers and toes, and all parts in-between. Bones, bones and more bones, and along with it lots of learning to be done. This book could fit into a lot of different studies it is just that good. I urge you to give it a gander. 🙂
