About the Author

Heather Manley was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. She studied biology at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. Initially she focused on wildlife conservation and animal biology, however, with some exposure to naturopathic medicine, this health care philosophy rang true for her. She switched to pre-med and graduated in 1993 and earned her doctorate from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon before moving with her family to Hawaii where she became licensed and continues to practice today. She began her writing once her children were born and realized the importance of teaching them, by example, about healthy food and lifestyle. Telling them what to eat was not enough, so she created and wrote educational adventure stories that have evolved into the Activity Workbook and Audio CD Human Body Detective series and now in picture story book format!

Format: Paperback
This series is wonderful! Dr. Manley's extensive knowledge of human anatomy and nutrition is the foundation upon which the entire series is based, but she seamlessly integrates this information into kid-friendly stories that are both educational and exciting. What would be a dull lecture on the circulatory system in any textbook is instead an exciting adventure that takes readers through the bodies by way of extensive illustrations and fun dialogue. This series is a must for any school library, and I would also highly recommend it to parents of children who are not science-inclined. Audiotapes, available for each book, are also provided. Very highly recommended!!

I absolutely love this book. What a great idea Heather! The activities are fun and make you want to learn. I love the fun facts and all the games. Who knew that the digestive system could be so fun?
