KIRKUS REVIEW

If you need a bone book with a little more meat than Balestrino's Skeleton Inside you (1971) and a slightly younger presentation than Zim's Bones (1969), this latest recapitulation will do. Otherwise there is nothing distinctive about either the bouncy pictures or the brief and easy text that tells just a bit about the shapes and jobs of different bones, about joints and muscles and cartilage and calcium, about how bones mend and where (not how) they make blood cells. Frequent suggestions that the reader swing his arm, kick a ball, etc., are not enough to bring these bones to life.
