Reviews - What do customers think about Stones & Bones?

Review  Dec 3, 2007
I looked through the book and it's looks excellent - really good pictures and a lot of facts along a story line. It turns out to be a little too old for my grandson who's just about four now. He's very interested in dinos and that's why I purchased it. He will probably be ready in another 6 months to a year. I would say this book is good for five and over.
Great children's science book!  Nov 21, 2007
Stones & Bones by Char Matejovsky and Robaire Ream is a lovely children's book. Robaire's beautiful illustrations bring to life Char's poetic description of the process of evolution. There are big words (and a glossary of pronunciation) for kids to get their mouths around. And of course, dinosaurs - who doesn't like a book with dinosaurs in it?

When you finish reading the book, you can listen to the CD which is included. The Santa Rosa Children's Chorus sings "Stones & Bones" as well as "The Song of the Meadowlark." So you can sing-along while you read the book. (And "The Song of the Meadowlark" is a beautiful and very catchy song. I hope the pair work together on making a book about that song as well. There need to be more children's books about Earth stewardship.)

It's refreshing to read a science children's book that has very good science in it AND is fun to read (and look at). If you have any children around you who want to know about evolution, get them this book. Or donate one to your local library. Or your school library.
My 6-year-old loved it!  Nov 12, 2007
This book was the perfect introduction to the concept of evolution for my six-year-old daughter. The verses led her to ask some wonderful questions, such as "What is DNA?" & "What is a mammal?" We've both since learned a great deal together while exploring the answers to her questions.

The illustrations meanwhile are absolutely gorgeous, and perfectly complement the verses. They are also enough, in and of themselves, to capture the attention and curiosity of any child ... as well as this adult.
My grandkids loved this book!  Nov 6, 2007
I recently purchased Stones and Bones for my three grandkids who are all eight years old. They loved reading the book with so many big words. The ones they couldn't figure out they looked in the back of the book for the correct pronunciation. There were so many things to see on one page and they loved pointing different things out.

This is a book that they will return to time and time again. Besides just pure fun they are learning too, which is a win win kind of book!
For the young and not so young.  Nov 6, 2007
This children's book is a delight and it is not just for children. The verse and illustrations are so rich; it is not possible to experience the whole adventure of this book in just a couple of readings. Surprises are lurking throughout the wonderful illustrations.

As a science teacher for over thirty years with the last thirteen years dedicated to teaching teachers how to teach science, I can say this book is a gem for explaining the process of evolution to children. I can reiterate that it is also good information for adults.

It is informative, yes, but also whimsical and downright fun to read. With the music CD in the back, it is possible to sing along with the text and that too is great fun. It is unusual to find such a fine teaching tool that is also this much fun.

I hope the author and illustrator team up to make more excellent books like this one.

I can recommend this book to all elementary teachers, parents, grandparents and folks who love children. This book will make a terrific gift for Christmas or birthdays. My family bought copies for each of our school and public libraries in the area. But I have a personal copy in my library just for me.
