Why does a baby have about 350 bones, while her mom has just over 200? Why are our bones hidden—not like a skeleton's? Kids will learn answers to these questions and more in this engrossing book.


Curious children learn most by zigging and zagging through the world, collecting information and connecting the dots.


The Zigzag series is designed to introduce individual subjects to children and encourage them to zigzag down other paths to find out more. "I-can-read" print and photos clarify, illuminate, and pique interest. All books are in K1-appropriate, easy-to-understand language and addresses science-as-inquiry curriculum standards.

Bones:
Imagine breaking a rib just by coughing or having an internal organ turning to bone. These are just two of the many life-threatening challenges faced by Jake Grys and Holly Pullano, two people with extraordinary genetic bone disorders. Jake is a spirited 9-year-old boy who has broken practically every bone in his body, and Holly is a 28-year-old whose muscles and tendons can turn to bone after the slightest impact. Using advanced animation, National Geographic travels inside Jake's diminutive frame to discover what make his bones so brittle and explores Holly's inner workings to find out how organs can turn into bone, progressively encasing her in a second skeleton.

Bones of Turkana follows the story of famed paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey and his wife Meave, daughter Louise and their colleagues, as they work in the arid northern regions of Kenya’s Turkana Basin to unravel the mysteries of human evolution. While one of the Leakeys’ goals is to demonstrate the complexity and truth of human evolution, they also seek to show how the qualities that we proudly call human were all born in Africa. The story that emerges in the film is exciting, emotional, contemplative, occasionally funny, and in the end, transforming. This is Africa at its most beautiful and harshest.
