I will say up front that this book was my favorite. (It) could easily lead to a unit study on the skeleton or even the whole body. --We Love to Homeschool Blog (October 11, 2009)
...full of goofy illustrations and facts about our bones, along with a great rhymes. "Remember the tarsals, way down in your feet? Instead, hands have carpals. Phalanges repeat". Love it! --Hearthside Homeschool Reviews (October 13, 2009)
... one of the most entertaining and delightful bone/skeleton books I have ever read. The rhymes are catchy, the illustrations fresh, the factoids interesting. (It) would make a superb addition to any home school curriculum. (Children's Author and Public Speaker Aileen Stewart, Shelby, OH---January 27, 2012).
From the Author
I wrote the rhyming text for this book as a quirky learning aid about the human skeleton. The interest in the subject matter soon opened the door for writing similar learning rhymes about several other human systems. Before I knew it a series was in the making, which I have called "The Sum Of Our Parts".
This book is the first book in that series of nine books which I hope will be useful to support scientific learning in the early and middle school grades and among home schoolers. For me, the challenge of weaving the technical terms into rhymes has made the writing of them a whole lot of fun.

Listing bones from bottom to top and learning their names and what they do becomes easier with Kirk's witty rhymes; and when put together with the superb illustrations by Eugene Ruble, you've got a real winner.
Each page includes factoids about bones: the long and the short ones, the flat and the irregular ones. Kids learn which bone is the longest and which is the shortest. How many bones are in each hand? Your son or daughter will be able to tell you after reading "No Bones About It...". There's also a neat mystery bones quiz that asks readers to identify the pictures of bones found on each page of the book.
Learning just doesn't get any more fun than this!
