People often describe Klutz books as hands-on, but we''ve never been quite this literal about it before. The Hand Book comes with a life-sized skeleton hand. It''s an irresistible invitation to find out what goes on under your skin.
Assembling the 22 snap-together, custom-molded bones is rewarding in itself. And when you''re done, you''ve got a scientifically accurate, movable model on a sturdy display stand, ready to help you discover what makes your own hands so remarkable. Working in collaboration with a team of experts, including a hand surgeon, a hand therapist, and a slew of 11-year-olds, the scientists at Klutz Labs have come up with tons of intriguing, educational, and just plain cool hand activities. Test your digital dexterity and hand-eye coordination. Find out what you can do that a chimpanzee can''t. Learn to read the secrets hidden in a hand - fingerprints are just the beginning.
Our point is this: Beyond its eye-catching appeal, this skeleton hand is a serious learning tool. And if you happen to leave it someplace where it will scare your sister, that''s just a bonus.
