ABSTRACT
A chapter of the book "How Muscles and Bones Hold You Up: A Book About Models," by Marcia S. Freeman is presented, which compares human skeletal system with the wooden framework of a house. Unlike a wooden frame, bones are not nailed or bolted together. Ligaments, muscles, and tendons hold our bones together. Ligaments attach one bone to another. Ligaments are like pieces of stiff elastic that can stretch a little when the bones move. Photographs describing this are also presented.
