This rhyming book to help children learn more about their bones takes the dull art of learning and turns it into fun. No Bones About It… is just one in a series of The Sum of Our Parts books by Bill Kirk.
Listing bones from bottom to top and learning their names and what they do becomes easier with Kirk’s witty rhymes; and when put together with the superb illustrations by Eugene Ruble, you’ve got a real winner.
Each page includes factoids about bones: the long and the short ones, the flat and the irregular ones. Kids learn which bone is the longest and which is the shortest. How many bones are in each hand? Your son or daughter will be able to tell you after reading No Bones About It… There’s also a neat mystery bones quiz that asks readers to identify the pictures of bones found on each page of the book.
