How Your Hand Really Works
This fun, fact-filled novelty book comes packaged with the SmartLab Skeletal Hand set. The last few pages of the book contain instructions for assembling the model.
Research Notes
“This is the first time I’ve written a book that accompanies a toy or model, so it was interesting to see how the publisher would combine the various components. I learned so many interesting things about the human hand, but the best part of working on this book was giving the final product to my nephew, Colin. He quickly discovered that the Skeletal Hand gave great back rubs.”
