Summary
You can't see your bones with binoculars, but you can with x-rays! In this introduction to the skeletal system, actual x-rays overlay colourful, anatomical drawings. Clear explanations and a humorous, interactive text engage readers in finding and feeling all the 206 bones in their bodies, from head to toe (cranium to phalanges).
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "K-Gr. 2. In this follow-up to You Can't Taste a Pickle with Your Ear BKL Ja 1 & 15 03, Ziefert and Haley offer another whimsical introduction to human anatomy for the very young. The lighthearted text takes children on a tour of their bones, showing the connections from skull to toes, all illustrated in Haley's goofy cartoons with X-ray images overlaying each spread's featured bone. The text's attempts at corny humor may be lost on some kids, and the drawings don't always clearly illustrate the more subtle concepts. But Ziefert's enthusiasm is contagious as she encourages children to move from the text to their own skeletons: "Wiggle those toes. Do you see your phalanges move?" A final, labeled skeleton offers all the bones' names on one page. Pair this with Bob Barner's Dem Bones (1996), a more musical introduction to the skeleton, or with Lizzy Rockwell's The Busy Body Book, reviewed above. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2003 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "You Can't See Your Bones with Binoculars: A Guide to Your 206 Bones by Harriet Ziefert, illus. by Amanda Haley, done in the style of their earlier books (You Can't Taste a Pickle with Your Ear and You Can't Buy a Dinosaur with a Dime), uses humor to deliver information about how the skeletal system works. Ziefert writes, "It is hard to feel your thigh bone, or femur, because it's covered by big muscles, which you need for walking, jumping, and running away from alligators!" (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
