FOR 4-11 YEARS
Matthew loves 'Josie Juice and Matthew.'
The teaching sessions start with a brief read of a Busy Body story. In this group Bertie Bread and Rosie: Digestion was chosen.
A canvas was used to discuss and demonstrate the story further. One of the children was picked to draw around as an outline for the anatomy. The digestive system was drawn in as the children remembered each part of the story. An artificial small intestine was made so that the children could visualise and measure the length ('almost as tall as a giraffe.'). The intestine was then wound up and popped in a bag on the canvas to show how it all fits into the abdomen area.
Similar was done relating to the large intestine. Gas Family emoji's were added. All through the story emoji's of Bertie Bread were used to show how he gets smaller and smaller.
The story finishes with a poo! A toilet is drawn and all the children are given poo emoji's for the toilet and Gas Family emoji's to place over the canvas ('the Gas Family fly all over the bathroom.').
Even the 4 year old's sat through the story and discussion. They remembered the details of the story and interacted well. There was a good discussion at the end, particularly by the older children. Included were questions about how I wrote and published the book; anatomy and science; could anyone write a book?

"Amber and Sasha FROM NEW ZEALAND"
Sasha and Amber let out a big woo-hoo! as they skipped into the house with their books.

"Even Archie loves Susie Sugar!"
Thank you so much for writing the Susie Sugar book, somehow you've managed to turn a disease into a fun filled read which left me educated (shameful to admit after battling with the illness for 27 years!) and it certainly provides a fantastic insight to those who know very little about the disease. I have now ordered one each of the others as well. P.s Archie enjoys a read of Susie Sugar every day.
"I had to read Bertie Bread to Sienna every day for two weeks!"
Sienna's Mum, Natalie, bought the original version of Bertie Bread when only 100 were produced. It was due to the enthusiasm of children like Sienna, their parents and teachers in the classroom, that I went on to produce more books in the series.
"I have read all of heather's books"
This book is great! I love all the Brucey Blood and other characters. I went sledging for my birthday which was great fun and this is why Heather used it in this book. Josie Juice is after my Mum who is called Josie.
I have read all Heather's books and now have a really good idea what happens inside my body.
I have taken them into school and they have used them to teach us in the classroom. Heather also came in and read Bertie Bread and Rosie. She used a big picture of a body and lots of emojis for us to stick on the picture. She even had a long piece of material that looked like an intestine for us to measure.

She finds them much more interesting than the TV!
