A little bit about Human Body Detectives: The Human Body Detectives (HBD) is an award winning story-telling children's book series and website for kids was founded by naturopathic physician, Dr. Heather Manley in 2008. As a doctor and a mother, Dr. Heather believes that if kids understand how the food they eat plays a direct role in how their bodies function, they will be more inclined to make healthy food choices. In her search for books and resources that provide engaging and entertaining stories on how the different systems in the body work and how nutrition plays a direct role, she discovered there were very few books out there doing this. That is when the idea for the Human Body Detectives series came to her.
