The various fonts are visually appealing without feeling too busy, and delightful illustrations help readers to imagine what they might look like if they had, say, extra vertebrae (a tail) or finger bones that reached the ground (like a bat's webbed fingers). The information is delivered in a clear, straightforward manner with a Q&A format that will get kids predicting before each page-turn.
The back matter-sections titled More About Bones and More About Vertebrates, and recommended books and websites for further reading-can all be used for differentiating instruction for kids who want to go more in depth with the information in the book. Struggling readers or English Language Learners can use the illustrations to grasp the book's main idea.
Although this is an any-time-of-year book, it would be fun to include Bone by Bone in a Halloween display. Highly recommended.

The vocabulary is mostly simple; yet words like "vertabrae" can be challenging, even with the glossary, so prepare to be on hand to help younger readers.
A real page-turner (your opposable thumbs that is)!
How about if you had a few less bones than you do now and “what if you didn’t have any arm or leg bones?” Check it out and do some thinking now. No skull, no vertebrae, and no ribs. Looks like you just might be a ssssssnake! Now they don’t have any arms or legs, but neither does another critter. This one doesn’t have any nose and if we moved “your breathing holes from the front of your face to the top of your skull” (eeew!), what would you be? Of course you would be a whale or a dolphin. Perhaps you guessed that one easily, but there are many other “riddles” about bones that might stump you in this book.
This marvelously fun and ingenious book that compares animal skeletons will fascinate the young reader. Of course it will keep them guessing as well. There are a few clues the young detective will have to think about before turning the page to find the answer. The illustrations pop and add a lot to the comparisons. For example, you can see a girl with huge vertebrae in her neck. Once you turn the page it’s easy to see that the giraffe is the owner of that type. A small amount of additional information is given, information that can easily be a stepping stone to a school report. In the back of the book is a glossary, more information about bones, vertebrates, and additional recommended book and website resources to explore. Additional complementary resources can be downloaded on the publisher’s website.

Fantastic introduction into taxonomy. Although she still preferred the animatronics dinosaurs at the museum...sigh
