Books | Dem Bones

“Using a classic African American spiritual as a springboard, Barner dives gleefully into this clever anatomy lesson. Enthusiastic members of a skeleton band cavort across the pages, strumming guitars, blowing horns and otherwise helping to establish a spirited tone while imparting bits of relevant information. Barner’s cut- and torn-paper collages are geared for tickling the funny bones of the early elementary set. No bones about it, this will be a real boost for those looking to inject a little humor and fun into basic facts about the human body.”
