Book of Bones: 10 Record-Breaking Animals

Publisher: Phaidon Books

Review

Discover which creature has the biggest bone, the lightest bone and even the spikiest bone in this unique volume of record-breaking animals!

This is a brilliant exploration that will fascinate young readers in guessing what the animal is from their distinctive skeleton and fun facts. It's all accompanied by striking illustrations of the animal and their environment, with an added bonus of a textured skeleton overlaid on the image, so children can touch and see how the bones fit within the bodies.

By combining record-breaking and fun trivia, this is a great and accessible introduction to the world of anatomy and the wider natural world for inquisitive minds.
