    Still, as she points out at beginning and end, all of the bones here have human equivalents, and that connection should give both casual browsers and budding naturalists plenty to gnaw on. A rib-tickling gallery, anything but dry. (bibliography) (Informational picture book. ). This book got my reluctant reader so excited to read! I bought the book to read at bedtime to my 10 and 12 year olds who love Minecraft. As soon as my 10 year old read the back, he stole it away and holed up in his room fo 3 straight days reading it! I also got hourly play-by-plays of what was happening/5().

Samira and the Skeletons book. Samira likes school, especially when she gets to sit next to her best friend, Frida. But when they learn about the skeletal system in science class, Samira suddenly begins to imagine everyone in school as a walking skeleton.

Soon she starts avoiding her fellow classmates, even Frida, but Samira still can't escape her own skeleton. Overall, the book is cute and humorous.

The only thing that through me off was at the end of the story, the book compares our muscle tissue to steak and ground beef. I still love how Samira overcomes her ickiness of bones with the help of her mother and best friend/5(3).

A darling little comedy about friendship and anatomy, Camilla Kuhn's "Samira and the Skeletons" would be a great book to introduce to an elementary school classroom when covering a lesson on the body (especially around Halloween time)/5.

As Samira slowly begins to comprehend her teacher’s lesson, Kuhn deftly lightens Samira’s dark brown skin until readers are able to see her bones—along with the bones of everyone else around her. Suddenly, Samira is surrounded by skeletons. Even her best friend, Frida, is one. Luckily, Samira’s mom has a cunning solution.

Fortunately, Samira realizes skeletons are good for dancing and jumping rope; unfortunately, muscles are the next day’s lesson. “They are the same as meat,” explains Samira’s ever-helpful.

With some clever help from her mother, though, Samira realizes that maybe having a body full of bones isn't necessarily a bad thing. Enhanced by delightfully impish illustrations, Camilla Kuhn's playful book depicts the hilarious results of an imagination gone awry.
