Human Body Detectives *Giveaway*

The Human Body Detective Series by Dr. Heather Manley

About The Series:
Kids ages 4 to 10 will love this series of educational adventure stories which follow two "Human Body Detectives", Merrin and Pearl, magically entering different systems in the body to solve a health mystery.

About Case File #1 - The Lucky Escape:
Merrin and Pearl's little brother Robbie has swallowed a penny! Through magic and imagination they find themselves on an adventure through his digestive system where they must grab the penny, save Robbie and narrowly escape his poopy diaper. Through their journey down the esophagus, into the stomach, and through the intestines, the girls experience some close calls - almost being squirted with hydrochloric acid and being bumped by gas bubbles. Their encounters force them to learn first hand all about the digestive system and why it is so important to eat healthy foods. Ideal for ages 4 to 10.

About Case File #2 - Battle Of The Bugs: 
Merrin and Pearl's little cousin Max is sick, threatening everyone's Mexican holiday. This time the girls find themselves in Max's body, witnessing firsthand the immune system in action. They befriend a white blood cell warrior who leads them into battle against the offending bacteria, and listeners learn why it's important not to eat candy and sugar when you have an illness - it can fuel bacteria and viruses and make you feel sicker. Ideal for ages 4 to 10.

About The Author:
Dr. Heather is a parent, a Canadian and a naturopathic doctor whose search for books and resources that provide healthy eating tips for kids and parents left her empty handed. That’s when she discovered that the best way to educate families about healthy eating and body care is through fun, engaging, entertaining, and educational methods. Dr. Heather’s kids love being a part of Human Body Detectives and are passionate about sharing their love of healthy eating with other families.

My Thoughts:
I was able to review the first two books, and they are awesome. Number one, the illustrations are amazing!! And I love how the writing is illustrated too. A small picture of broccoli in place of the word broccoli, etc. Number two, not only is this book fascinating to look at, but it is educational as well, in a super fun way. I loved these two books! It does say ideal for 4 to 10 year olds, but I do think some of the words are too "big" for a 4 year old. But older kids, such as 7 and up would love these books!

One lucky winner will win a PDF copy of the first book in the series! Here's how to enter:

1. Follow this blog via GFC, the newsletter, or Networked Blogs.

Giveaway ends July 21st. Good luck!
