Book Review - Give Me Back My Bones

Give Me Back My Bones

About the Book

A silly pirate skeleton seeks to put its bones back together in this rhyming romp beneath the waves.

Cast a spyglass ’round here
while breakers curl and pound here.
There’s treasure to be found here —
I feel it in my bones!

A stormy night at sea has uncovered some long-buried secrets and surprises. Is that the mast of a shipwreck? A faded pirate hat? And what’s that hiding in the sand? A mandible and a clavicle, phalanges and femurs, a tibia and a fibula — could there be a set of bones scattered across the ocean floor? And who might they belong to? A jaunty rhyme takes readers on an underwater scavenger hunt as a comical skeleton tries to put itself back together piece by piece. Make no bones about it: this rollicking read-aloud will have young ones learning anatomy without even realizing it.

My Take on the Book
This was such a fun book that lets the reader check out the how the pirate skeleton can find all of its/ bones. What is fun is that the bones are scattered throughout the ocean floor. The book is a fun, but educational story. It was a great book in time for Halloween!!
