Human Body Detectives: Review and Giveaway

Posted by Valerie's Reviews at 12:30 AM 23 comments

*There were 334 entries. The winner is Amber.
Thank you for entering*

Human Body Detectives (HBD) was created to inspire children to be proactive and confident in striving for their own optimal health.


I was sent a set of 3 books:

The Lucky Escape


Merrin and Pearl’s little brother Robbie has swallowed a penny.  Through magic and imagination, the girls find themselves on an adventure through his digestive system where they must grab the penny to help him and escape his poopy diaper.


This book was my 4 year olds favorite. It was really the only one she enjoyed. Here she is showing her favorite part of the book.

My 1st grader enjoyed learning about the digestive system. This book is written in a way that really helped her to get it and to hold her interest.

Battle with the Bugs


Merrin and Pearl’s cousin Max is sick, threatening everyone’s Mexican holiday.  This time the girls find themselves in Max’s body, witnessing first hand the immune system in action. They befriend a white blood cell warrior who leads them into battle against the offending bacteria.


She really enjoyed learning about the immune system. She loved the pictures of the bugs that make you sick and the gross factor with the snotty nose.

A Heart Pumping Adventure


During breakfast with her dad, Merrin is concerned about his eating habits and his heart. A few moments later, she and Pearl are riding on a red, pillowy, donut–shaped boat, floating on a red–colored sea and surrounded by hundreds of these grape–like things! Where are the girls and where are they headed?


This one was her favorite. She really liked the diagram of the heart and all the talk about blood.

I loved how easy it was to get my 7 year old interested in these books. I really like how much information is packed into them without it being way over her head. The Glossary in the back of the book really helped when I was asked what a word meant and I just wasn’t sure how to explain it. I think the best part of all was jokes in the back of each book, we all enjoyed those. This is an excellent addition to our home library and I would love to see it in our local schools as well.

Post the elementary school name and/or local library where you would like to see HBD available.
