About the Author:

Sara Levine is an assistant professor of biology at Wheelock College and a veterinarian. She holds an MFA in creative nonfiction from Lesley University and has taught writing and literature courses there as well. Her publications include mostly science-related essays for adults, one of which was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2007. Her writing has appeared in the Health and Science section of the Boston Globe, The Massachusetts Review, Bayou, and in an anthology titled And Baby Makes More. In addition to teaching college level students, she has also been teaching children's environmental education classes for the Massachusetts Audubon Society and other nature centers in Massachusetts and Connecticut for over 15 years. Bone by Bone: Comparing Animal Skeletons is her first book for children.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2–Levine takes a unique approach to comparative anatomy. The purpose of the book is to illustrate differences between human and animal bone structures. Each page presents a question, e.g., “What kind of animal would you be if your finger bones grew so long that they reached your feet?” The answer is revealed with the turn of the page (“A bat!”). The bright, stylized, color illustrations match each question, portraying cartoon children with distorted anatomy, such as a girl with a neck like a giraffe's, or a snake with a human head. Some may find the gloppy piles of cartoon children with no bones unappetizing, while others may find the peculiar images amusing. Many of the riddlelike questions will play well in a storytime setting, allowing readers to ask a question and permitting children to imagine and participate in the answer. Bone by Bone does not have the detailed informational content or illustrative depth of Steve Parker's Skeleton (DK, 1988), but it does succeed in presenting basic structural differences among animals. This unusual book is interactive and thought-provoking, if a little gross in certain sections.–Jeffrey Meyer, Mount Pleasant Public Library, IAα(c) Copyright 2013.
