Kids will learn that bones come in all shapes and sizes to serve a myriad of functions and be able to compare human skeletons to those of other vertebrates. The book also covers related topics such as tendons and joints, and includes tips for how to keep bones strong. An index and a glossary of scientific terms are included.
