In a straightforward fashion, this volume lays out the most important features of the skeletal system, from the anatomy of bones and the different parts of a skeleton, to joints, ligaments, and tendons. Photos are interspersed with easy-to-understand diagrams, while text boxes serve as captions. The book is divided into four well-organized chapters; a glossary, suggested reading, and an index provide further guidance, and a publisher’s link leads to more resources. Sure to be a helpful research aid.

Series Review

This series will be useful in any collection needing updated texts about the human body. The titles clearly explain what functions each of the six systems performs. The design is eye-catching and attractive, with lots of clean white space and an easy-on-the-eyes font. Captioned photographs or colorful diagrams appear on every page. Many of the photographs were taken with a microscope and are sure to fascinate children. In every volume, the detailed photo captions and sidebars provide additional interesting factoids that complement the main texts. For example, readers learn in Respiratory that “You can sing high and low by tightening your vocal cords.” These titles will appeal to browsers, and the strong back matter makes them useful for reports as well.
