"Merrin and Pearl's little brother Robbie has swallowed a penny! Through magic and imagination they find themselves on an adventure through his digestive system where they must grab the penny, save Robbie and narrowly escape his poopy diaper. Through their journey down the esophagus, into the stomach, and through the intestines, the girls experience some close calls - almost being squirted with hydrochloric acid and being bumped by gas bubble s. Their encounters force them to learn first hand all about the digestive system and why it is so important to eat healthy foods."
Ideal for ages 6 to 12.
My Review: The Lucky Escape is a fun way to get children to want to learn about the human body and the things it can do. The story was well written and the illustrations were great! Besides the story, the book also includes a search and find list, more facts about the story's topic, a "human map" of body parts involved, jokes, healthy eating tips and a glossary. All of these things make the book even better and help with the learning. After reading this book with my daughter, I couldn't wait to read the next book!
She absolutely loved this book. It made her interested with things that happen inside the human body.
The second book is called Battle with the Bugs.
"Merrin and Pearl's little cousin Max is sick, threatening everyone's Mexican holiday. This time the girls find themselves in Max's body, witnessing firsthand the immune system in action. They befriend a white blood cell warrior who leads them into battle against the offending bacteria, and listeners learn why it's important not to eat candy and sugar when you have an illness - it can fuel bacteria and viruses and make you feel sicker."
Ideal for ages 6 to 12.
Same as the first book, very educational in a fun way. The story made mucus cool! I think Dr. Heather has a best selling series going for her because she explains the medical parts of the story in an easy way for children to understand and making children want to learn more about the human body.
After The Lucky Escape, I told her that there was a second book and she got so excited! "There's more?!" She couldn't wait to hear the next adventure about the body. This book didn't disappoint. "Learning about the human body is awesome!" - Katie
Be on the lookout for a third adventure in the series called
A Heart Pumping Adventure. The story is about the circulatory system. "During breakfast with her dad, Merrin is concerned about his eating habits and his heart. A few moments later, she and Pearl are riding on a red, pillowy, donut–shaped boat, floating on a red–colored sea and surrounded by hundreds of these grape–like things! Where are the girls and where are they headed?" (*Info taken from the website)

I decided that I wanted to change my blog around, give it some cleaning and a different look. Expect that some things will take longer to change than others. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I do hope you like the changes. Please feel free to give me suggestions and/or feedback.

The envy edition is painted by BadApplezInc's Mike "NeMO" Mendez, the tops and bottoms are a realistic granny smith green with the core painted in gold mettalic with a black wash. Each Two Faced Rotten Applez mini figure comes poly bagged with a header card. I wish I could grab one of these. So awesome!
Nick Gill is a 20 year old pop rock artist from Nashville, Tennessee. "Waves Are Only Water" is Nick's 5th album. If you like John Mayer, Dave Barnes, The Fray, Matt Nathanson, Mat Kearney (you can see his album review from me here.) then you will like Nick Gill!
I took a few days to listen to this album because I like to listen to the songs a couple of times to get a feel of the music and lyrics. Nick's acoustic guitar and smooth voice go very well together. Although I don't listen to this type of music much, I believe this album was great from start to finish.
I absolutely love "Summer In The Winter Time". The first time I listened to this track, I got goosebumps. I immediately had to play it again. I asked Nick for permission to do a remix of this song and he said yes! I will be posting the remix to my SoundCloud page when it is finished.
I give "Waves Are Only Water" 4 out of 5 music notes!
