Is set up to walk you through the human skeleton and other animal skeletons. This book has a lot of information in it about skeletons. I like the way DK sets up there informational books with larger portions of text and then smaller more detailed information scattered throughout the pages.

Recommended age 7-13
Reading Level 4th-6th grade

This book is great for kids to look at. I would have loved to have a book like this when I was younger. It shows different animal and human skulls and bones. Very interesting book to look at.
detailed pictures and explaination of the phenominon of skeletal systems and their influence on the animals they are within
It was really good, explained all the bones in detail. And was not just human bones, but many animals as well.
This book is great for the science class. You learn a lot a skeletons and bones.
"I like this because it has pictures of body parts and skulls."
