Bone By Bone — Learn About Human Skeletons

How are human skeletons like and unlike those of other animals? During the next few weeks, children in grades 1 through 6 and their families are invited to take a walk along the Trove’s 2014 Summer StoryWalk® and find out!

The book being featured is: Bone by Bone: Comparing Animal Skeletons written by Sara Levine and illustrated by T.S Spookytooth. The walk will keep you guessing with questions like what would you have if your vertebrae did not stop at your rear end and what kind of an animal would you be if you had just a skull, vertebrae, and ribs and what kind of animal has finger bones that reach all the way down to its feet. Be sure to take advantage of this great opportunity to discover something special about what makes us humans!

The Storywalk® continues through Tuesday, September 2, 2014. Check it out any time the library is open during this time! Before starting the StoryWalk®, pick up a form at the Compass (information desk) in The Trove. The first stop is in the window next to the Sailaway. Follow the arrows as you proceed at your own pace through the rest of the stops. Complete the form and turn it in at The Compass. You will receive a prize and be entered in the final drawing.

Note: The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
