    One thought on “You Can't See Your Bones With Binoculars: A Guide to Your 206 Bones”

    1. Aside from one factual inaccuracy, I thought this books was pretty entertaining. (A baby has 305 bones, not 450.) The layout was attractive and the set up was a great way to tell kids about the skeletal system. The illustrations are detailed and humorous at times. I do feel that the page telling the reader that knowing big words will make others call them a nerd is a bit uncalled for.

    2. you can't see your bones with binoculars! 5 starsAnything that gets the kids into the story and laughing, asking questions is a most excellent 5 star read for us!We talked about bodies and how they worked for days. We sang the head bones connected to the neck bone and on and on with the kids pointing to each bone and showing me and the kids all over again how it works. The pictures were funny and informative. I have preschoolers, ages 3, 4 and 5 and some of the information is over the younger on [...]

    3. Given the other reviews, I think kids will like this book more than I did as an adult reader. Somehow the text seemed to be trying too hard, parts of it felt a little random to me. She used the "tail bone connected to the" rhyme as a framework, but also "come on a tour" of your bones and feel the bones as you go along. I liked the incorporation of the real x-ray photos into the illustrations. Will definitely be one to recommend to students & teachers.

    4. A great intro to the skeletal system for my kindergartner. It directs her how to feel for her bones and shows x-rays of the bones inside cartoon bodies. It gives just enough info for this age, and uses humor, too.

    5. We have books on bones in our classroom already, but none that are this fun. Full of facts and illustrations with kid-appeal - this is sure to be a winner in our classroom. And, of course, I love the questions/activity suggestions.

    6. This one was a great look at the bones of the body. Even though there was lots of text for a short 4 yr old attention span, he listened all the way through. I think we'll probably get it again when he's older too.

    7. I think this was one of my sister's favorite from Harriet Ziefert. She wants to be a doctor, so she like learning about her bones.

    8. I got this book for my seven year old to read for nightly reading. Her 2nd grade class did a unit on the body. It made it fun to learn about bones.

    9. Cute and informative. Teaches kids about the bones in a a simple, interesting and humorous way. can either me read to a child or can be read by someone with level 3 skills.
