Ever wonder what is the best way to teach your kids about the body and what it does? Well Heather over at Human Body Detectives has come up with a great solution. Write a kid friendly book! Heather Manley has written three imaginative books that help children understand the body.
The Lucky Escape: An Imaginative Journey Through the Digestive System- Learn what happens when you swallow a penny and take the adventure into the digestive system to try to recover the penny.
A Heart Pumping Adventure: An Imaginative Journey Through the Circulatory System The heart is a wonderful thing. When two girls go on a red sea journey they learn the difference between healthy fat and unhealthy fat and how it effects our heart.
Battle with the Bugs: An Imaginative Journey Through the Immune System We all know what these bugs do to us and how hard it is to fight them off. When the bugs threaten their vacation they decide to take action and fight back.
I was thrilled to get the chance to review these three books from Heather.

Well at first glance I was thinking “I don’t know if Cooper will get them” but after a few reads and some explaining he did get it. I really enjoyed the Heart Pumping Adventure. It really gave me a good chance to help explain good food and bad food. It helped explain what happens when we eat too much of the bad stuff.
The immune system was another one I also thought was a great teaching tool. I explained why he needs to wash his hands and why when he has a cold we cover our mouth and use a tissue. We all know how kids wipe their nose. Ewww.
If you are a home-school parent, these might be great teaching tools for your kids.
You can get these great books from Amazon and the Kindle version is only $2.99 a book. That is a great deal!
Here is your chance to own your own copy of the Heart Pumping Adventure. What better giveaway to have on Valentine’s Day then a book about the heart. 2 lucky readers will win a copy. Ends 2/28. Good Luck
