Fun and informative ... for instance have you ever compared a bear paw, a monkey hand and a human hand? The pictures really hit home that a monkey hand really looks like a humans hand. It also gives fun stuff to do such as try picking up a penny or throwing a baseball without using your thumb. Get the book and learn more.
