Heart Pumping Adventure Teaches Health the Fun Way
Honolulu, HI – June 28, 2010 – Human Body Detectives, an audio and workbook series of action-packed fiction stories focused on kid’s health, announced today the launch of its third book A Heart Pumping Adventure, taking kids on a voyage of the circulatory system.
The plot surrounds character Merrin who, while eating breakfast with her dad, becomes concerned about his unhealthy eating habits. A few moments later she magically swirls into her dad’s digestive system, riding on a donut-shaped boat in a red-colored sea surrounded by grape-shaped objects. The story unfolds through a circulatory mystery, teaching kids how to make healthier choices with eating and exercise while examining how the lungs, liver and kidneys work. Kids also learn important health information such as how to take your pulse and what comprises a heart healthy meal.
The book series is authored by Dr. Heather Manley, a Hawaii-based naturopathic physician who noticed a void in children’s books that focused on the different systems of the body in an interactive and engaging way. The characters are based on Dr. Heather’s daughters of the same name – Merrin and Pearl. The series currently features The Lucky Escape, teaching the digestive system, and Battle with the Bugs, teaching the immune system, and the latest A Heart Pumping Adventure, for kids’ ages 7-12. Each book features an audio and workbook component with activities, puzzles and colorful stickers to reinforce learning.
“My goal is to help children strive for optimal health,” said author Dr. Heather Manley. “Understanding how various body systems work and which foods fuel our system is critical. Kids need to know how the food they eat plays a direct role in how their bodies function.”
Human Body Detectives books are available for $19.95 each at www.humanbodydetectives.com
