A BOLTON Primary School teacher has published the first book in a brand new series designed to creatively educate young people about the human body.
Harry Heart is the first in a series of books called Organ-ised, written by Bolton School teacher Hannah Berry from Lostock.
The recently published book, by editors Austin Macauley, was conceived by Hannah as a way to educate children in a more accessible way.
She said: “I have wanted to create the books for a while as I have worked with children and wanted to create something where they can learn and have fun at the same time.
“I really wanted to create something for kids to learn about the human body with rhymes and a bit of humor.”
Future episodes of the series are in the works and feature alliterative titles of other body organs.
They include Bob Brain, Larry Lungs, Sid Stomach, Patsy Pancreas, Lucy Liver, Izzie and Iggy Intestine, Keith and Kenny Kidney and Suzie Skin.
The educational rhyme books are primarily aimed at helping children “understand the 10 major organs in the human body and how each specific organ works” according to Austin Macauley, while providing the information in “an engaging and engaging way.”
Hannah added, “It was a bit of a challenge to find the perfect rhymes and write the books sometimes, but most of the time it was okay.
“I have taught a lot of kids in schools over the past few years and I know how important it is for them to care about what they are learning.
The book has already received praise from parents posting reviews on various sites.
One reviewer said, “My little boys really enjoyed this book. They are impatiently awaiting the next volumes in the series.
Another said she bought the books for her grandchildren – “but learned a lot of facts herself”.
The first book is available for purchase now at most bookstores or direct from the publisher at austinmacauley.com.
