“Our goal is that children everywhere will have the knowledge to make wise choices
in the care of their bodies.”
Anatomy for Kids aims to empower children by teaching them about their bodies so they can be confident and make the best health decisions for themselves. Through a foundation of age-appropriate knowledge about the child’s body provided in our books and online resources, we focus on promoting education and a healthy body image.
Another objective of Anatomy for Kids is to provide accurate, useful information for parents through the Parent Resources on our website, frequent blog postings and social media contributions. Dr. Metten’s careful review of blogs written by other authors and various media releases makes the Anatomy for Kids website a safe content location for parents as they search for resources.
Established in 2012 by anatomist, Dr. Shelley Metten (Dr. M), Anatomy for Kids helps children learn about how the amazing body works. We provide books, resources for parents and digital interactive exercises that work together to provide a comprehensive learning resource. All materials are written by Dr. Metten, an expert on the human body, who recently retired after more than 20 years as a professor from UCLA Medical School.
Our Anatomy for Kids comprehensive learning system is for parents and children to study the human body together in a fun and educational way. Whether you’re reading a printed book or utilizing our parent resources and blogs, this is a place for you to find the answers you need.
