About the Book

Read and find out all about what a skeleton can do in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

Your skeleton helps you leap, somersault, and touch your toes—without it, you would be as floppy as a beanbag! There are over 200 bones living and growing inside you that make up your skeleton. There are also ligaments and joints that hold your bones together, and cartilage in your bendable parts like your ears and your nose. Read and find out more in Skeleton Inside You!
