REVIEW: Bones by Steve Jenkins

Rating: 4/5 Stars
Audience: All Ages
Genre: Nonfiction

Summary: In this offering from Caldecott winner Steve Jenkins, children of all ages can see in-depth the bones of both human and various animal skeletons.  Fold out pages and large illustrations fill the pages of this well-done non-fiction book for all.

Lucinda's Views:  With its detailed cut-paper illustrations of both human and animal bones, this book allows kids-of-all ages to compare their own bones with that of various other animals.  Many bones in this book are actual size and the cut paper illustrations are fascinating in a macabre way.  The text offers simply yet direct explanations of anatomy and physiology in a manner that most will easily understand.  On the whole, a very enjoyable, fascinating read.
