From the Inside Flap
They do a big job.
Without them, you'd be just
A big squooshy blob.
In BONE POEMS, Jeff Moss rhapsodizes over T. Rex, celebrates Quetzalcoatlus, offers a ditty to Deinocheirus and a ballad to Brontosaurus. There's a dinosaur math quiz, free verse about a basketball-size dinosaur egg, and one of the world's shortest poems with one of the world's longest titles.
Inspired by the bones of dinosaurs and early mammals on display at the American Museum of Natural History, the author has created poems that are fresh, funny and delightfully off-beat. They are a joy to readand read and read again.

Ostracoderms were ancient fish
Who had no jaws to chew.
With open mouths their food was slurped
As water filtered through.
Perhaps that's why ostracoderms
Kept such a pleasant mood--
They never had to hear their moms
Say, "Henry, chew your food!"
Besides the poems, the book also includes a mini-comic book telling two sides of a story involving a rhinoceros and an elephant. The end of the book includes a pronunciation guide illustrating how to pronounce all the different animals and many other difficult words found throughout the book. A wonderful gift for any child who likes dinosaurs, bones, or poetry.
