For the past 10 years, I have been assisting elementary school teachers in their human body and nutrition classes and teaching home schooled students the HBDs Go to School curriculum.
Weaving in games, activities and labs are the best ways to engage and excite kids to learn. I give students the foundational understandings they need to further they knowledge on the subject matter... and they always seek out more information to share with me and their fellow students!

Dr. Heather Manley, ND, is a practicing physician who received her medical degree in 2001 from National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon. She is also the award-winning author of The Human Body Detectives series. A contributing writer to Dandelion Moms, Organic Eats magazine, Parents Canada, and KIWI magazine, Dr. Heather was inspired to write The Human Body Detectives stories when she went on a search for books about healthy eating tips for parents and kids and couldn't find what she was looking for. She wanted to provide a fun and engaging resource that would teach kids about how their bodies work and what foods best feed them. And the HBDs were born. The Human Body Detectives series won Moms' Choice Award and is also a Parent Tested, Parent Approved winner. Dr. Heather has been named to the Top 50 Mompreneurs Bloggers List on both Babble and VoiceBoks. Dr. Heather lives and practices on the Big Island of Hawaii. She focuses on providing resources for families so that they can learn more about preventative healthcare as a way to help them confidently and proactively make good choices regarding their everyday health. She lives with her husband and two daughters, Merrin and Pearl, who the characters in her stories are based on. Dr. Heather is currently at work writing another Human Body Detectives adventure, an imaginative journey through the muscular system.
