Human Body Detectives (HBD), a series of action-packed fiction stories that take kids on imaginative journeys through the digestive, immune and circulatory systems, now releases its’ fourth case story on the skeletal system, Osteoblasts to the Rescue!

The characters are based on Dr. Heather’s daughters of the same name – Merrin and Pearl, who have the ability to jump in and examine the various systems on in the body; their adventures are fun stories and helpful tools to educate children on how their body works and whay foods best fuel it. Each book is geared for 4 – 10 year olds, whereas, corresponding elementary science curriculum features in depth turn – key lesson plans, labs, colorful stickers and activities for grades 3 to 5.In Osteoblasts to the Rescue, Merrin and Pearl navigate their friend, Lily’s, broken arm and learn all about bones: from how bones fix themselves to what nutrients they need to be strong and healthy.
