Hello, and welcome to MyBodyVillage.com, the official site for all things Body Village. My Body Village is a series of books created to help teach children about how their bodies work in an informative yet entertaining way. The series introduces children to the wonders of how their bodies function on the inside, shows them how a healthy lifestyle promotes an efficient body, and helps to explain what is going on when their bodies aren’t functioning properly.
Through interesting characters and exciting stories, My Body Village will establish a relationship between a child and their body that will encourage them to treat their bodies well and educate them on the wonders of what is going on inside them.
How to use the books:
The best way to use the books is to read them with your children. Your children will begin to develop a relationship with the characters which will lead to a better relationship with their body. You can further solidify this relationship by referring to the characters in everyday life. You can ask your child, “Is Betty full?” or “Is Steven feeling upset?” As this relationship grows your child will begin to think about the choices they make and how these choices effect these “residents” of their body.
How to use the website:
The website supplements the books by furthering the relationship your child has with their body. You will find fun games, activities, music, images, challenges, and videos that will engage your child and continue the lessons from the books. It’s also a place where you can learn about upcoming books, events, new website material, and articles about children’s health.
What is the weekly challenge and how does it work:
Every week there will be a challenge posted on the website. These challenges will be simple things you and your child can add to your daily routine that will promote a healthy lifestyle. Each challenge will have a point value. You and your child can log the points you accumulate in the printable Weekly Challenge Log that you can find on the Activities page. When you reach certain point levels you can mail in your log and receive a prize for your hard work. Ideally you will continue to do some of the challenges long after their week has passed.
