HEY BUDDY, I’M YOUR BODY! is the first installment of a series on body, mind, and soul called Kids’ Questions about Life. It’s an educational book written in simple language for parents, teachers, and kids who are pondering the deeper, more complex yet so essential issues of life. This is an early introduction on who we are and how to take care of ourselves.
Explaining the complexity of the human being in general is not an easy but very important task for parents. These concepts are made more tangible and easily understandable through a family of bears. As the bear cubs ask questions about their bodies, Mommy Bear and Daddy Bear seek to answer their little ones with simplicity and honesty.
Emphasizing that we are part of nature and made from the same building blocks as everything else in nature helps children understand how to take care of their bodies. Knowing about the language of the body and becoming more aware of it is also very essential. The body knows how to heal itself, but it needs our help to make informed and wise choices for a healthy and happy lifestyle.
