Body Works: Super Skeleton by Anna Claybourne


Body Works: Super Skeleton by Anna Claybourne

Get to grips with your bones and muscles! This title takes readers on a visual tour of the skeleton, explaining the different bones and how they fit together, how muscles work and even how skeletons can tell us many interesting things about people who lived a long time ago. Graphics show the different layers inside a bone and what a broken bone looks like through an x-ray. Fun experiments and activities include discovering what would happen to our bones without calcium and building a replica arm muscle. Following on from the successful Science Crackers series, Body Works explores the science of the Human Body. Bitesize facts and gross stories make information easy to digest. Lively and informative text is supported by clearly labelled illustrations and detailed photographs, while questions help children to relate to science and comical cartoons help them to visualise scientific facts.
