I’ve long wanted to write a series of books that parents and children can use together to learn more about the human body and all its wonderful systems.
I’m so thankful that my dream has become real and I’m writing this post on the Anatomy for Kids website that’s launching in its full form in just a few weeks.
In that spirit, here are the things I’m especially grateful for this season as I contemplate the release of the complete line of Anatomy for Kids books and resources:
1) I love that reading these books together creates happy memories for both parent and child.
2) I’m thankful that children now have an enhanced opportunity to learn about their bodies and get their questions answered.
3) I’m grateful that I’ve been able to provide parents with a framework to use as they teach their kids about reproduction – a typically challenging topic – so children learn the facts and what their parents think is important.
4) Thanks to the design of the Anatomy for Kids website, I can interact directly with parents and help guide them as they teach their kids.
5) I’m thrilled that with profits from Anatomy for Kids, I plan to start a foundation to help needy kids and parents as they struggle for necessities during difficult times. I also look forward to sending educators and our resources to centers where children without parents live, so they can learn about anatomy from other concerned adults.
There’s so much I’m giving thanks for this season, and I am grateful to all of you for being a part of this journey with me.
Have a lovely Thanksgiving with your loved ones!
