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

I know these are made for younger readers but I enjoy them very much. Great pictures and layout make them a joy to read. I always learn something new from them. This volume had a reference to a lost chapter in the Bible, in the book of Daniel called "Susanna and the Elders". Highly recommended
