The Skeleton Inside of You
by Philip Balestrino
Your skeleton helps you leap, somersault, and touch your toes—and without it, you would be as floppy as a beanbag! There are over 200 bones living and growing inside of you that make up your skeleton. There are also ligaments and joints that hold your bones together, and cartilage in your bendable parts like your ears and your nose. Read and find out all about what a skeleton can do! This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It's a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.
Now rebranded with a new cover look, this book features content-rich vocabulary, fascinating side bars, and diagrams, and beautifully detailed illustrations by veteran illustrator True Kelley. The classic text by Philip Balestrino and illustrations were vetted for accuracy by an expert in the field.
This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards.
