Dr. Bonyfide Presents: Bones of the Hand, Arm, and Shoulder is a great way for kids to learn science and anatomy. Pinky, a smart girl from Oakland, and Dr. Bonyfide, the skeleton professor, present the 64 bones of the upper extremities in a fun way. Our characters use crosswords, mnemonics, x-ray images, illustrations and other graphic learning tools to help kids internalize anatomy concepts. On completion, kids will be able to pronounce, write, and locate their bones from their clavicles to their phalanges. In the journey they will learn some Greek and Latin as they explore the etymology of bone names.
Designed for young readers, this colorful workbook makes learning the names and functions of the bones easy. It is presented by Dr. Bonyfide, a skeleton professor, and his friend Pinky Le Darpals. They take readers on a whimsical, step-by-step journey through the bones of the hand, arm, and shoulder.
Besides helping kids learning vocabulary and anatomy processes, this book helps kids gain essential knowledge of their bodies, with the ultimate goal to inspire self-confidence from the inside out.
