Who has wrinkly skin, stands while they sleep, and has the heaviest bone in the world?

Using her book, Whose Bones? An Animal Guessing Game (illustrated by Sam Brewster), former teacher and now author Gabrielle Balkan will guide animal lovers through a series of clues to answer this fact-lovers question, and lots more besides. Animal lovers will draw their guesses and see if they can correctly answer "whose bones are these?" for the six animals in her book.

Your young animal-lover will have so much fun showing off their animal smarts that the the only way Gabrielle has found she can end the virtual visit is by challenging them to create a guessing game of their own! If you thought you were proud of your kiddo before, just wait until you see what they create after this session.

Gabrielle can make this program an excellent experience no matter what the size of your group is: one kiddo, a group of 10, or even 30. For super-sized groups, consider a 45-60 minute session.
