Bone by Bone: Comparing Animal Skeletons


What animal would you be if your finger bones grew so long that they reached your feet? Or what if you had no leg bones but kept your arm bones? This picture book will keep you guessing as you read about how human skeletons are like and unlike those of other animals.










I am a big fan of nonfiction for kids. I always buy informational/nonfiction books for my kids to read. I figure, reading is important on its own, so why not get a 2-for-1 deal in the process? On a good day, they might learn something from that book!

Bone by Bone is an informational book that teaches younger readers about different animals and their skeletons through riddles. The most common animals are covered with pretty easy clues. The illustrations are interesting, and I'm certain younger readers will be fascinated by them. I liked that the key vocabulary words were set apart from the rest of the text in large font of varying colors. There is also a glossary at the end of the book for additional information.

I would take this book a step further with my own kids and challenge them to think of more animals to include in the book. My boys love to draw, so they would enjoy the creative representation involved. (Honestly, I'm pretty sure most kids would.)

Bone by Bone is a quick read suitable for younger readers still learning about their environment. Older readers may find the riddle too easy.
