Excellent detailed information on the body's structural system.

This is kind of a more advanced book for kids, but is full of information. In my classroom, I will let the more advanced readers use this book when we are doing informational reading and writing. This is a great book to get facts from and learn all about the bones in your body. The students in my second grade placement love this book.

Great pictures in this book, but it was kind of vague in it's discussion of the skeleton. More diagrams to accompany the pictures would have been helpful. I'd say kids reading this would remember absolutely nothing because of how the material was presented.
Learn the different bones and why they are important.
a great resource for teacher about the human body
