Give Me Back My Bones!Give Me Back My Bones! by Kim Norman; illustrated by Bob Kolar. 2019. Digitally created. Published by Candlewick Press.

Brief summary: A skeleton at the bottom of the ocean slowly finds and puts himself back together again with the help of the the sea creatures

Comments: The internal rhyming and rhythm of this book are funny with silly wordplay young readers will find delightful to repeat. I would share this read-aloud book when starting the skeleton system in primary school.

The front end pages have the skeleton disassembled with the bones labeled, while the back end pages are of a pirate skeleton assembled with the bones labeled. Two paged layouts throughout.
