Give Me Back My Bones! Reviews

  • Ana Marlatt

    This book is amazing! Funny, creative and useful in so many ways! Great for a human body unit. Great for modeling wonderful rhymes. Very clever use of language. This book will delight young and old alike.

    My middle granddaughter, age 5, likes books that are a bit creepy, so I was pretty sure this one might be a hit. The timing is perfect for Halloween and yes, "she loved it" as well.

    A stormy night, a shipwreck, a pirate skeleton and scattered bones along the ocean floor but, who do these bones belong to? Well, it seems it's the pirate that is missing his bones. Can this poor pirate recover his missing bones?

    A fun, quirky and educational story told mostly in rhyme except that the last line on each page actually gives the proper name for that particular bone. The illustrations are well done, colorful and funny, not scary -- just a tad spooky for Halloween. The book is fun to read out loud and helps children to learn more about bones at the same time. The back of the dust jacket also has great poster that lists each of the skeleton's bones. (Another winner for ages 5-8 from Candlewick Press)

  • Eve Costarelli

    Really fun, quirky rhyming book with a solid description of anatomy of the skeleton, that is perfect for the budding scientist. It brings new words and a deeper understanding of the skeletal body in a fun, non-scary way. The book is very clever and step-by-step reconstructs a pirate skeleton all the while imparting scientific knowledge and answering questions like “what is inside me?” and “what do these body parts do?” This is a great first book of anatomy for teachers scientists, doctors, yoga

    Really fun, quirky rhyming book with a solid description of anatomy of the skeleton, that is perfect for the budding scientist.

The book is very clever and step-by-step reconstructs a pirate skeleton all the while imparting scientific knowledge and answering questions like “what is inside me?” and “what do these body parts do?” This is a great first book of anatomy for teachers scientists, doctors, yoga teachers and is fully accessible to very young children with its endearing, friendly, humerus (ha ha) skeleton and beautifully detailed underwater scenes. This is a great book for the Halloween book shelf and to celebrate “Talk Like A Pirate Day.” I love the big bold colorful illustrations by Bob Kolar and there's a wonderful skeleton poster inside the jacket. This book is a winner from front to back!

    I highly recommend it and cannot wait to share it with my littlest yoga students as we bend stretch, and strengthen our skeletons!

    Thank you to Candlewick Press for sending me this book. All opinions expressed are my own.

    An absolute delight. I love the blend of correct terminology with colloquialisms.

    Perfect for Halloween and the nerd in all of us.

    Help this scurvy peg-legged pirate skeleton put itself back together in this fascinating and humorous picture book!

    Give Me Back My Bones is both humorous and educational! The front end pages show the skeleton in many pieces with the names of the bones beside each one. Then the story begins and we plunder the bottom of the ocean for the skeleton's missing bones!

    This book has fun rhymes and fantastic illustrations that made us happy to read it again and again! It's the perfect way to transition your child from 'head, shoulders, knees, and toes' and simple body parts to what lies beneath the skin!

    My daughter loved this one so much she asked me to read it several times a day and now knows the names of the bones featured in this story by heart!

    This was a perfect read with Halloween coming up even though there is nothing spooky about it beyond the skeleton itself!

    I mean, if you’re teaching body parts and names of bones and want a humorous way to introduce it. Or a science-y “Halloween” read (without being Halloween).

    Cute art. And the inside of the book jacket is a poster.

    But it just hit me weird that it was a skeleton at the bottom of the sea that was being put back together. Yes, I read entirely too much into this one.

  • Becky

    A hilarious read about a skeleton whose bones are scattered all over the ocean! The best part is they use the actual names for the bones - so he might be looking for his mandible. Excellent way to introduce new vocabulary! And it's a fun read as well.

  • Katie Fitzgerald

    This is one of the only picture books published this year that I have felt was well-written, well-illustrated and kid-friendly. My five-year-old daughter loved reading the book aloud with me, locating each bone on her own body and learning its proper name. I love that the text doesn't try to find rhymes to match each bone and instead rhymes only the lines that don't mention them. I also think the ending is one of the most satisfying I've seen in a picture book in a long time - the last line is j

    Kim Norman's rhyming picture book begs to be read aloud, on Halloween and perhaps on "Talk Like A Pirate" Day. The end papers themselves are delightful. In the opening, human bones are scattered and labeled, except for that peg leg! The back is vertical, showing the full skeleton of a pirate, with accompanying pirate wear, like hat, sword and spyglass. He's found all his bones! The four-line rhymes on each page after the opening are good for laughing out loud every time. A poor pirate skeleton'

    Kim Norman's rhyming picture book begs to be read aloud, on Halloween and perhaps on "Talk Like A Pirate" Day. The end papers themselves are delightful. In the opening, human bones are scattered and labeled, except for that peg leg! The back is vertical, showing the full skeleton of a pirate, with accompanying pirate wear, like hat, sword and spyglass. He's found all his bones! The four-line rhymes on each page after the opening are good for laughing out loud every time. A poor pirate skeleton's bones have been scattered throughout the sea bed, and he shouts for the creatures down there to help put him back together again. Bob Molar's illustrations of the ocean's dark bottom serves as backdrop for many kinds of colorful creatures and plants as well as peeks at the bones needed, skull first, and on. Each verse defines the bone called for in rollicking rhyme! Here's one from this fun book:

    "Who can spot my shoulder blade,

    my shrugging jacket-holder blade,

    my shiver-when-I'm-colder blade?

    Oh, scapula, come back!"

    Thanks to Candlewick Press for the copy!

    3.5..

    I wanted to give this book a 4 but I couldn't do it. I am not sure why because the illustrations where great and the story was cute. But 3.5 is still not too bad!
