Bone Voyage! Physician Publishes New Children's Book Teaching Kids About Their Skeletal System

Bone Voyage! Physician Publishes New Children's Book Teaching Kids About Their Skeletal System

PR Newswire

Through interactive questions, author provides a resource to learning bones and how the body works

SAN MARCOS, Calif., Feb. 27, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "Sticks and stones may break bones, but words will never hurt you." A phrase readers may know but identified by many as inaccurate. Agreeing to the accuracy of the quote is author Paulette Smartmackey. Instead of seeing words as an opportunity to hurt others, she uses them as a chance for children to learn about their skeletal system in her animated guide, "Meet Skulle."

"I wanted to offer an entertaining approach to studying the human body and how it functions," Smartmackey said. "We're given our bodies once and must take care of them. I hope my book will help readers of all ages understand that learning can be fun!"

In the beginning of the book, readers are introduced to Skulle, a skeleton eager to go out and play; but before playtime begins, readers must learn the names of all his bones that help him run, swing, jump, and move.

"From the cranium to the metatarsals;" Smartmackey said, "readers are taken on an interactive journey through the world of the skeletal system, with engaging narrative and interaction questions."

Written for young minds, the book targets age ranges within elementary and middle school grades, and was cultivated to be suitable for various learning levels, while aiming to combine fun and education.

"I wanted to offer an entertaining approach to studying the human body and how it functions," Smartmackey said. "We're given our bodies once and must take care of them. I hope my book will help readers of all ages understand that learning can be fun!"
