With Osteoblasts to the Rescue, Heather Manley once again succeeds in making science, health
and nutrition exciting and fun for kids. As a homeschooling parent, I love having such an engaging way to teach and reinforce concepts about anatomy, medicine and the human body. From preschooler to 5th grader, all of my kids love the Human Body Detectives, and we're excited to follow Merrin and Pearl on their next adventure!

Human Body Detectives teaches children how their bodies work with lively, interesting stories that focus on individual systems but then connects those systems so that kids understand how their bodies really work. I love that the stories weave food and nutrition into the narrative to give kids an understanding of why eating whole foods is so important. If you're looking for something that educates and entertains children - while teaching parents as well - don't miss out on this modern "physiological" version of the Magic School Bus series.

"A terrific way to "bone up" on your knowledge of the skeletal system! Once again, Merrin and
Pearl's delightful adventures allow readers to learn science and health from a new perspective."

Human Body Detectives is the most innovative way to teach children in making the connection
between their diet and how it affects their bodies. These books are well written, so children
can understand and look forward to the next adventure with excitement. Dr. Manley's mission is
perfectly aligned with Vitalah's creators of Oxylent to empower children in making healthy choices to contribute to their overall good health and wellbeing. We look forward to seeing more
Human Body Detectives at work! Thank you Dr. Manley!

From the Author
Yes! But what is so wonderful about the series is that kids do not even realize they are learning. My goals for students are:
● Have a basic understanding on how each body system functions, how they work independently, yet are dependent on each other to function optimally.
● Understand the important role nutrition plays in having a healthy body.
Do you plan on doing a series for older kids?
I recently launched the Human Body Detectives Go To School Nutrition 101 for Middle and High School curriculum. It is an extensive turnkey nutrition unit for grades 6 through 12. It is full of entertaining labs, practical information and simple everyday guidelines to food and nutrition.
The HBD curriculum can be purchased on the Teachers Pay Teachers and Homeschooling Buyers Co op websites. Reviews and testimonials can be read on Human Body Detectives site.
