Format: Hardcover
"The Bones You Own" comes to us from National Geographic Kids. It's a bright, colorful book with page backgrounds in a rainbow of colors, and with all sorts of interesting images presented at interesting angles. Written at the 3rd Grade level (AR is a generic "3") the book gives early elementary school aged children an idea of the function of bones and the diversity of their shapes and sizes.

There are no chapters nor table of contents but here's some of what is covered:

What bones do (protect and support)
Where they are (arms, legs, chest, head)
Joints
Breaks... and repairs
Marrow and blood production
Size (stapes versus thigh bone)
Soft versus Hard (babies to adult; cartilage to bone)

The last two pages have some great questions for kids, such as "What do you think a whale's bones look like?" And "Most bones are in your hands and feet. Can you think why?"

Overall, I think it would make a good addition to a classroom and elementary school library. Too limited though for long-term home use unless you have a large family.

Talking Points :::
o Colorful, kid-friendly book with bright pictures in a lively format.

o It's a simple introduction suitable even for the 5 to 8 crowd.

o Accelerated Reading Level: 3 (generic)

Format: Hardcover
I have a 4-year-old that is obsessed with bones. You know how some 4-year-olds are obsessed with dinosaurs? Mine is obsessed with the human skeleton. We have checked out every book in our small military overseas library that is even remotely related to bones and the human body. Since he is only 4, most of these books were much MUCH to detailed for his level, but still he would carry his "bones-book-of-the-week" everywhere with him and diligently study the pages for hours on end. I was DELIGHTED when I finally stumbled on this book hiding in a corner of the library. It has simple text so that I can actually read it to him (instead of looking at a page filled with text and a tiny diagram and summarizing what the diagram was showing and pretending to read it haha) and he actually understands the concepts presented. It's colorful and full of pictures. We checked it out twice in a row and he cried for two hours when I finally made him turn it in so another child could have a turn with it. I am now here on Amazon about to order a copy to give to him for Christmas.
This book is colorful with lots of photos and illustrations, has a fairly easy reading level with nice big print, and is perfect for a kid like mine.
